GENERAL INFORMATION 



North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University 

HISTORICAL STATEMENT 

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was established as the A. and 
M. College for the "Colored Race" by an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina rat- 
ified March 9, 1891 . The act read in part: "That the leading object of the institution shall be 
to teach practical agriculture and the mechanic arts and such branches of learning as relate 
thereto, not excluding academical and classical instruction." 

The College began operation during the school year of 1 890-9 1 , before the passage of the 
state law creating it. This curious circumstance arose out of the fact that the Morrill Act passed 
by Congress in 1 890 earmarked the proportionate funds to be allocated in bi-racial school sys- 
tems to the two races. The A. and M. College for the White Race was established by the State 
Legislature in 1 889 and was ready to receive its share of funds provided by the Morrill Act 
in the Fall of 1 890. Before the college could receive these funds, however, it was necessary 
to make provisions for Colored students. Accordingly, the Board of Trustees of the A. and M. 
College in Raleigh was empowered to make temporary arrangements for these students. A 
plan was worked out with Shaw University in Raleigh where the College operated as an 
annex to Shaw University during the years 1890-1891, 1891-1892, and 1892-1893. 

The law of 1 89 1 also provided that the College would be located in such city or town in the 
State as would make to the Board of Trustees a suitable proposition that would serve as an 
inducement for said location. A group of interested citizens in the city of Greensboro donated 
fourteen acres of land for a site and $ 1 1 ,000 to aid in constructing buildings. This amount was 
supplemented by an appropriation of $2,500 from the General Assembly. The first building 
was completed in 1 893 and the College opened in Greensboro during the fall of that year. 

In 1 9 1 5 the name of the institution was changed to The Agricultural and Technical College 
of North Carolina by an act of the State Legislature. 

The scope of the college program has been enlarged to take care of new demands. The Gen- 
eral Assembly authorized the institution to grant the Master of Science degree in education 
and certain other fields in 1939. The first Master's degree was awarded in 1941. The School 
of Nursing was established by an act of the State Legislature in 1953 and the first class was 
graduated in 1957. 

The General Assembly repealed previous acts describing the purpose of the College in 
1957, and redefined its purpose as follows: "The primary purpose of the College shall be to 
teach the Agricultural and Technical Arts and Sciences and such branches of learning as 
related thereto, the training of teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the public schools 
of the State, including the preparation of such teachers, supervisors and administrators for 
the Master's degree. Such other programs of a professional or occupational nature may be 
offered as shall be approved by the North Carolina Board of Higher Education, consistent 
with the appropriations made therefor." 

The General Assembly of North Carolina voted to elevate the College to the status of a 
Regional University effective July 1, 1967. 

On October 30, 1971, the General Assembly ratified an act to consolidate the Institutions 
of Higher Learning in North Carolina. Under the provisions of this act, North Carolina 



Agricultural and Technical State University became a constituent institution of The Univer- 
sity of North Carolina effective July 1, 1972. 

Six presidents have served the Institution since it was founded in 1 89 1 . They are as fol- 
lows: Dr. J. O. Crosby, (1892-1896); Dr. James B. Dudley, (1896-1925); Dr. F. D. Bluford, 
( 1 925- 1 955); Dr. Warmoth T Gibbs, ( 1 956- 1 960); Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor, ( 1 960- 1 964); 
and Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy, who was elected President April 10, 1964. Dr. Cleon F. Thomp- 
son, Jr., served as Interim Chancellor of the Institution from November 1 , 1 980 until August 
31, 1 98 1 . Dr. Edward B. Fort assumed Chancellorship responsibilities on September 1 , 1 98 1 . 

HISTORY AND PURPOSE OF THE SCHOOL OF GRADUATE STUDIES 

Graduate education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was 
authorized by the North Carolina State Legislature in 1939. The authorization provided for 
training in agriculture, technology, applied sciences, and other approved areas of study. An 
extension of the graduate program approved by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 
1957 provided for enlargement of the curriculum to include teacher education, as well as 
such other programs of a professional or occupational nature as might be approved by the 
North Carolina Board of Higher Education. 

On July 1, 1967, the Legislature of North Carolina approved regional university status for 
the institution and renamed it North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. 
Since that time, we have been called a comprehensive and even more recently a research 
entity as many of our programs are involved in significant research efforts. The graduate 
responsibilities of institutions so labeled are to prepare teachers, supervisors, and adminis- 
trators for master's degrees, to offer master's degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences, 
and to conduct such other programs as are deemed necessary to meet the needs of its con- 
stituency and of the state. 

The University awarded its first master's degree in 1941 to Woodland Ellroy Hall. Since 
that time, nearly 6,700 students have received this coveted degree of advanced studies. A sig- 
nificant number of these graduates have gone on to other universities to achieve the presti- 
gious doctorate degree in their chosen specialties. More than two dozen or so of these 
graduates have returned to augment the academic acclaim of this institution at the under- 
graduate levels in varied specialties, and larger numbers have emerged from the advanced 
levels of the university to serve in public schools, government, industry, business, religious 
and social agencies. 

The School of Graduate Studies through its various disciplines is affiliated with the Amer- 
ican Chemical Society, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), 
the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, The Council of Graduate 
Schools, The Conference of Southern Graduate Schools, The Council of Historically Black 
Graduate Schools, the North Carolina Conference of Graduate Schools, and other prestigious 
regional and national bodies. In addition, many graduate faculty members are associated with 
distinguished academic and professional organizations that have international acclaim and rela- 
tionships. 

The School of Graduate Studies has an integrated and intercultural faculty and student 
body and beckons students from all over the world. It coordinates and administers advanced 
course offerings in all departments within the School of Agriculture, the School of Educa- 
tion, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the School of Tech- 
nology. First of all, the School of Graduate Studies offers advanced study for qualified 
individuals who wish to improve their competency for careers in professions related to agricul- 
ture, humanities, education, science, and technology. Such study of information, techniques, 



and skills is provided through curricula leading to the Master of Science, the Master of Arts, 
or the Doctor of Philosophy degree and through institutes and workshops designed for those 
who are not candidates for a higher degree. Second, the School of Graduate Studies provides 
a foundation of knowledge and techniques for those who wish to continue their education in 
doctoral programs at other institutions or within the institution as it expands into the doctoral 
arena. Third, the School of Graduate Studies assumes the responsibility of encouraging schol- 
arly research among students and faculty members. 

It is expected that, while studying at this university, graduate students ( 1 ) will acquire spe- 
cial competence in one or multiple fields of knowledge; (2) will develop further their ability 
to think independently and constructively; (3) will develop and demonstrate the ability to 
collect, organize, evaluate, create, and report facts which will enable them to make a schol- 
arly contribution to knowledge about their discipline; and (4) will make new application and 
adaptation of existing knowledge so as to contribute to their profession and to humankind. 

Seven persons have served as dean of the School of Graduate Studies since its beginning 
in 1939. They are Dr. Wadaran L. Kennedy (1939-1951), Dr. Frederick A. Williams (1951- 
1961), Dr. George C. Royal (1961-1965), Mr. J. Niel Armstrong (1965-1966), Dr. Darwin 
Turner (1966-1969), Dr. Albert W. Spruill, (1970-1993), Dr. Meada Gibbs (1993-1996), 
Dr. Charles Williams (1996-1997), and Dr. Melvin N. Johnson (1997-).

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

In North Carolina, all the public educational institutions that grant baccalaureate degrees 
are part of the University of North Carolina. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State 
University is one of the 16 constituent institutions of the multi-campus state university. 

The University of North Carolina, chartered by the N.C. General Assembly in 1789, was 
the first public university in the United States to open its doors and the only one to graduate 
students in the eighteenth century. The first class was admitted in Chapel Hill in 1795. For 
the next 1 36 years, the only campus of the University of North Carolina was at Chapel Hill. 

In 1 877, the N.C. General Assembly began sponsoring additional institutions of higher edu- 
cation, diverse in origin and purpose. Five were historically black institutions, and another 
was founded to educate American Indians. Several were created to prepare teachers for the 
public schools. Others had a technological emphasis. One was a training school for per- 
forming artists. 

In 1 93 1 , the N.C. General Assembly redefined the University of North Carolina to include 
three state-supported institutions: the campus at Chapel Hill (now the University of North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill), North Carolina State College (now North Carolina State University 
at Raleigh), and Woman's College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro). 
The new multi-campus University operated with one board of trustees and one president. By 
1969, three additional campuses had joined the University through legislative action: the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina at Charlotte, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and the 
University of North Carolina at Wilmington. 

In 1971, the General Assembly passed legislation bringing into the University of North 
Carolina the state's ten remaining public senior institutions, each of which had until then 
been legally separate: Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, Elizabeth City 
State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical 
State University, North Carolina Central University, the North Carolina School of the Arts, 
Pembroke State University, Western Carolina University, and Winston-Salem State Univer- 
sity. This action created the current 16-campus University. (In 1985, the North Carolina 



School of Science and Mathematics, a residential high school for gifted students, was declared 
an affiliated school of the University.) 

The UNC Board of Governors is the policy-making body legally charged with "the gen- 
eral determination, control, supervision, management, and governance of all affairs of the 
constituent institutions." It elects the president, who administers the University. The 32 vot- 
ing members of the Board of Governors are elected by the General Assembly for four-year 
terms. Former board chairpersons and board members who are former governors of North 
Carolina may continue to serve for limited periods as non-voting members emeriti. The pres- 
ident of the UNC Association of Student Governments, or that student's designee, is also a 
non- voting member. 

Each of the 16 constituent institutions is headed by a chancellor, who is chosen by the 
Board of Governors on the president's nomination and is responsible to the president. Each 
institution has a board of trustees consisting of eight members elected by the Board of Gov- 
ernors, four appointed by the governor, and the president of the student body, who serves ex- 
officio. (The NC School of the Arts has two additional ex-officio members.) Each board of 
trustees holds extensive powers over academic and other operations of its institution on del- 
egation from the Board of Governors.

DIVISION OF RESEARCH 

The Division of Research was established for the purpose of promoting research at the Uni- 
versity by encouraging and assisting faculty members to develop proposals for research pro- 
jects and educational programs. In so doing, it also ensures that sponsored support for research 
and academic projects is compatible with University objectives, avoids unnecessary dupli- 
cation of programs, assures compliance with special safeguard procedures of the sponsoring 
agencies, and publishes and disseminates the research conducted at the University. 

Additionally, the Division of Research is organized to administer the research programs 
of the University. It has the primary responsibility of establishing contact and maintaining a 
liaison with federal and state funding agencies to keep abreast of current information. The 
office compiles and disseminates descriptive materials to faculty interested in extramurally 
funded activities. The office serves as a conduit through which flows pertinent and valuable 
information between the University and the support agencies. The office operates a grants- 
manship library consisting of the most up-to-date directories, program brochures, guidelines, 
manuals, application forms, and other material useful in seeking funds for projects. 

BOOKSTORE 

The Bookstore is responsible for selling and distributing textbooks, study aids, student 
supplies, departmental supplies, and souvenirs to the students, faculty, and staff.

DRUG AND ALCOHOL EDUCATION POLICY 

Preamble: 

The basic mission of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is to pro- 
vide an educational environment that enhances and supports the intellectual process. The 
academic community, including students, faculty and staff, has the collective responsibility 
to ensure that this environment is conducive to healthy intellectual growth. The illegal use 
of harmful and addictive chemical substances and the abuse of alcohol pose a threat to the 
educational environment. Thus, this Drug and Alcohol Education Policy is being promul- 
gated to assist members of the University community in their understanding of the harmful 
effects of illegal drugs and alcohol abuse; of the incompatibility of illegal drugs and the abuse 
of alcohol with the educational mission of the University; and of the consequences of the 
use, possession, or sale of such illegal drugs, and the abuse of alcohol, including the viola- 
tion of applicable laws. 
Objectives: 

I. To develop an educational program that increases the University community's knowl- 
edge and competency to make informed decisions relative to the use and abuse of con- 
trolled substances and alcohol; and 
II. To increase those skills and attributes required to take corrective action conducive to the 

health and well-being of potential drug and alcohol abusers. 
Program Components: 
There are five (5) components to this policy: 
I. Education 
II. Health Risks 
HI. Rehabilitation 
IV. Sanctions 
V. Dissemination and Review. 

I. EDUCATION 

It is the intent of the Drug and Alcohol Education Policy of North Carolina A&T State Uni- 
versity to ensure that all members of the University community (i.e., students, faculty, admin- 
istrators and other employees) are aware that the use, sale, and/or possession of illegal drugs 
and the abuse of alcohol are incompatible with the goals of the University. Moreover, each per- 
son should be aware that the use, sale, or possession of illegal drugs and the abuse of alcohol 
is, as more specifically set forth later in this policy, subject to specific sanctions and penalties. 

Each member of the University family is reminded that in addition to being subject to 
University regulations and sanctions regarding illegal drugs and the abuse of alcohol, he/she 
is also subject to the laws of the State and of the nation. Each individual is also reminded 
that it is not a violation of "double jeopardy" to be subject to the terms of this policy as well 
as the provisions of the North Carolina General Statutes. For a listing of relevant State crim- 
inal statutes, please see Appendix A. Further questions may be directed to the Office of the 
University Attorney or the Office of Student Affairs. 

Each member of the University community is asked to pay particular attention to the full 
consequences of the sanctions specified in this policy as well as the consequences of the 
North Carolina criminal law referenced above. Certain violations may jeopardize an indi- 
vidual's future as it relates to continued University enrollment or future employment possi- 
bilities, depending on individual circumstances. 



24 



Further, it is a policy of the University that the educational, legal, and medical aspects of 
this issue be emphasized on an annual basis through the provision of programs and activities 
in the following areas: 

(a) Annual Drug and Alcohol Education Week — Workshops and seminars on drug abuse 
led by former drug addicts and community agencies such as MADD, S ADD, and the 
Sycamore Center; 

(b) Drug and Alcohol Awareness Fair — Exhibits featuring drug and alcohol related para- 
phernalia; 

(c) Media presentations on University radio station, WNAA, emphasizing the most cur- 
rent programs with drug and alcohol education messages; 

(d) "Home for the Holidays, Don't Drink and Drive"; Drug and Alcohol Abuse Preven- 
tion Campaign; 

(e) Publication of brochure on drug education; 

(f) Continual monthly outreach programs in each residence hall. 

Although directed primarily to the student population, these educational programs shall 
also be open to participation by all categories of University employees. 

Additionally, the Staff Development Office is the designated University department responsi- 
ble for the planning and implementation of drug and alcohol education programs geared toward 
the special needs of the faculty and staff. Among the programs to be implemented by the 
Staff Development Office are lunch time seminars jointly conducted by the Sycamore Cen- 
ter, the Greensboro Police Department, and the Guilford County Mental Health Department. 

II. HEALTH RISKS 

Health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol are wide-rang- 
ing and varied depending on the specific substance involved and individual abuse pattern. 
These risks include, but are not limited to the following: 

1 . Physical changes which alter bodily functions such as severely increased or decreased car- 
diac output; shallow to irregular respiration; and damage to other major organs, such as 
kidney, liver and brain; 

2. Emotional and psychological changes including paranoia, depression, hostility, anxiety, 
mood swings, and instability; 

3. Additional health risks could include such illnesses as AIDS-HI V infection, sexually 
transmitted diseases, severe weight loss, cancer, cirrhosis, hepatitis, short term memory 
loss, seizures, and deformities to unborn children; 

4. Physical and psychological dependency (addiction); and 

5. Death from overdose or continual use. 

While these health risks are broad in range, persons consuming illicit drugs and alcohol 
will exemplify some, if not all, of the above symptoms. See Appendix A for a list of a few 
specific drugs and their corresponding health risks. 

III. REHABILITATION 

The University recognizes that rehabilitation is an integral part of an effective drug and 
alcohol policy. Consistent with its commitment in the areas of education and sanctions, the 
University intends to provide an opportunity for rehabilitation to all members of the University 
family. This commitment is evidenced through access to existing University resources and 
is furthered by referrals to community agencies. 



25 



Students 

The University Counseling Center and the Student Health Center are available to provide 
medical and psychological assessment of students with drug/alcohol dependency and 
drug/alcohol abuse problems. Based on the outcome of this assessment, treatment can be 
provided by either or both of these centers. If, however, the scope of the problem is beyond 
the capability of these Centers, affected students will be referred to community agencies such 
as the Guilford County Mental Health Center and Greenpoint. The cost of such services shall 
be the individual's responsibility. 

Employees 

Referrals to local community agencies will be made available to include the Guilford County 
Mental Health Center, Greenpoint, and private physicians. The cost of such services will be 
the individual's responsibility. The services of the University's Counseling and Health Cen- 
ters are not normally utilized by faculty and staff members except in emergency situations. 

IV. SANCTIONS 

A. Illegal Drugs/Prohibited Conduct 

All members of the University community have the responsibility for being knowledge- 
able about and in compliance with the provisions of North Carolina Law as it relates to the 
use, possession, or sale of illegal drugs as set forth in Article 5, Chapter 90 of the North Car- 
olina General Statutes. Any violations of this law by members of the University family sub- 
jects the individual to prosecution both by the University disciplinary proceedings and by 
civil authorities. It is not a violation of "double jeopardy" to be prosecuted by both of these 
authorities. The University will initiate its own disciplinary proceedings against a student, 
faculty member, administrator, or other employee when the alleged conduct is deemed to 
affect the interests of the University. 

Penalties will be imposed by the University in compliance with procedural safeguards 
applicable to disciplinary actions against students (see the Student Handbook), faculty mem- 
bers (see the Faculty Handbook), administrators (see the Board of Governors Policies 
Concerning Senior Administrative Officers as well as the EPA Non-Teaching Personnel Poli- 
cies), and SPA employees (see State Personnel Commission Policies). 

The penalties imposed for such violations range from written warnings with probation- 
ary status to expulsion from enrollment and discharges from employment. However, mini- 
mum penalties that apply for each violation are listed in Appendix A. For additional 
information, direct questions to the Office of the University Attorney or the Office of Student 
Affairs. It should be noted that where the relevant sanction dictates a minimum of one semes- 
ter suspension from employment, the regulations of the State Personnel Commission (as per- 
taining to SPA employees) do not permit suspension from employment of this duration. Thus, 
such sanction as applied to SPA employees dictates the termination of employment. 

B. Alcohol/Prohibited Conduct 

1 . Employees 

While the sale, possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages is not illegal under state 
or federal law, it is, hereby, the policy of North Carolina A&T State University that the con- 
sumption of alcohol sufficient to interfere with or prevent otherwise normal execution of job 
responsibilities is improper and subjects the employee to appropriate disciplinary procedures. 
It is also the policy of North Carolina A&T State University that alcoholic beverages not be 
sold on campus. Employees violating these policies are subject to appropriate disciplinary 



26 



procedures which may range from warning and probation to dismissal consistent with the 
individual circumstances. 

Similarly, employees are reminded that, under N.C. Law, it is illegal to sell or give malt 
beverages, unfortified wine, fortified wine, spirituous liquor, or mixed beverages to anyone 
less than 2 1 years old. It is also illegal to aid and abet any person less than 2 1 years old in the 
purchase or possession of these alcoholic beverages. Employees found violating these state 
laws are subject to legal sanction as well as the appropriate disciplinary procedures. 

2. Students 

Students are reminded of the following University regulations and state laws regarding 
alcoholic beverages as contained in the Student Handbook. 

1. Students are liable for violation of State Law GS 18B-302 while on University 
premises: 18B-302 Sale to or Purchase by Underage Persons 

a. Sale — It shall be unlawful for any person to 

I. Sell or give malt beverages or unfortified wine to anyone less than 21 years 
old; or 

II. Sell or give fortified wine, spirituous liquor, or mixed beverages to anyone 
less than 2 1 years old. 

b. Purchase or Possession — It shall be unlawful for 

I. A person less than 2 1 years old to purchase, to attempt to purchase, or to pos- 
sess malt beverages, or unfortified wine; or 

II. A person less than 2 1 years old to purchase, to attempt to purchase, or possess 
fortified wine, spirituous liquor, or mixed beverages. 

c. Aider and Abettor 

I. By Underage Person — Any person under the lawful age to purchase who 
aids or abets another in violation of subsection (a) or (b) of this section shall 
be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to five hundred dollars 
($500.00) or imprisonment for not more than six months, or both, at discre- 
tion of the court. 

II. By Person over Lawful Age — Any person who is over the lawful age to pur- 
chase who aids or abets another in violation of subsection (a) or (b) of this 
section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to two 
thousand dollars ($2,000) or imprisonment for not more than two years, or 
both, at the discretion of the court. 

1 . Students are responsible for conforming to state laws pertaining to 

a. Transportation of alcoholic beverages 

b. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in public places 

c. Consumption of alcoholic beverages by students under the legal drinking age 

d. Abuses of alcoholic beverages. 

2. There will be no consumption of alcoholic beverages in a motor vehicle while on Uni- 
versity property or on University streets. 

3. Consumption of alcoholic beverages is restricted to students' rooms in residence halls, 
if they are of legal drinking age.

lic places; that is: lounges, game rooms, study rooms, kitchens, laundries, or patios. 



27 



5. There will be no public display of alcoholic beverages. 

6. The University discourages the drinking of alcoholic beverages, and other abuses of 
alcoholic beverages. Being under the influence of alcohol is considered a breach of 
conduct and students who violate these standards are subject to disciplinary action. 

Violations of the above regulations and laws will subject students to criminal prosecution 
as well as campus-based charges. 

C. Suspension Pending Final Disposition 

The University reserves the right through the Chancellor or his designee to suspend a stu- 
dent, faculty member, administrator, and other employee between the time of the initiation 
of charges and the hearing to be held. Such decision will be made based on whether the per- 
son's continued presence within the University community will constitute a clear and imme- 
diate danger or disruption to the University. In such circumstances, the hearing will be held 
as promptly as possible. 

V. DISSEMINATION 

A copy of the Drug and Alcohol Education Policy will be distributed on an annual basis 
to each employee and student of the University. A distribution to all enrolled students will 
occur as a part of the registration process. The distribution to University employees will be 
administered by the University Personnel Office. 

The Chancellor of the University shall ensure on a biennial basis that this policy is reviewed 
to assess its effectiveness and consistency of application of sanctions, and to determine the 
necessity for modification. This review shall be conducted by October 15 of every other year, 
beginning in 1992. 

CONCLUSION 

A&T State University recognizes that the use of illegal drugs and the abuse of alcohol is 
a national problem and that sustained efforts must be made to educate the University family 
regarding the consequences associated with drug and alcohol abuse. The primary emphasis 
in this policy has, therefore, been on providing drug and alcohol abuse counseling and reha- 
bilitation services through the various programs and activities outlined above. 

Past experience suggests that most members of the University family are law-abiding and 
will use this policy as a guide for their future behavior and as a mechanism to influence their 
peers and colleagues in a positive direction. However, those who choose to violate any por- 
tions of this policy will pay the penalty for non-compliance. The main thrust of this policy 
has been to achieve a balance between its educational and punitive components. 

The effective implementation of this policy rests on its wide dissemination to all members 
of the University family. This will be accomplished by the dissemination procedure previously 
outlined and through its publication in the faculty handbook, student handbook, and Uni- 
versity catalogue. Additionally, all affected individuals will be assured that applicable profes- 
sional standards of confidentiality will be maintained at all times. 

FOOD SERVICES 

The University provides food services for students at a reasonable cost. A snack bar is 
located in the Memorial Student Union Building. Students who live in the residence halls 
are required to eat in the cafeterias. Students who live off campus may purchase meals also. 



28

ive of the academic mission of our students and the University.

ational, and cultural mission. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND ACTIVITIES 

The University provides a well-balanced program of activities for moral, spiritual, cultural, 
and physical development of the students. Religious, cultural, social, and recreational activ- 
ities are sponsored by various committees, departments, and organizations of the University. 
Outstanding artists, lecturers, and dramatic productions are brought to the campus. 

A listing of student organizations, their purposes, objectives, chief officers, and advisors are 
published annually by the Offices of Student Activities and Assistant Vice Chancellor for 
Student Development. This document is available upon request by any office. 

STUDENT CONDUCT 

Students enrolled at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University are 
expected to conduct themselves properly at all times. They are expected to observe standards 
of behavior and integrity that will reflect favorably upon themselves, their families, and the Uni- 
versity. They are expected to abide by the laws of the city, state, and nation, and by all rules 
and regulations of the University. 

Accordingly, any student who demonstrates an unwillingness to adjust to the rules and 
regulations that are prescribed or that may be prescribed to govern the student body will be 
placed on probation, suspended, or expelled from the institution. 

A student may forfeit the privilege of working for the University when, for any reason, he 
or she is placed on probation because of misconduct. 



29 



VETERANS AFFAIRS 

North Carolina A&T is an approved University for veterans and veteran dependents, who 
wish to attend and receive educational benefits. 

Persons wishing to attend the University under the Veterans Administration Educational 
Training Program should apply first to the Veterans Administration for a Certificate of Eligibil- 
ity. Simultaneously, they should apply for admission to North Carolina A&T State University 
through normal admissions procedures. The issuing of a Certificate of Eligibility by the Vet- 
erans Administration does not automatically assure a student of admission to the University. 

The Office of Veterans Affairs, located in Suite 005, Murphy Hall, has been established 
to assist veterans with enrollment and adjustment to college life. Upon enrolling at the Uni- 
versity, veterans or eligible persons should report to the Office of Veterans Affairs for certi- 
fication. If a Certificate of Eligibility has not been issued, the veterans or the eligible persons 
should see the University Certifying Official. 

Additionally, the Office of Veterans Affairs provides counseling and tutorial services. 

DISABILITY SUPPORT SERVICES 

The Office of Disability Support Services is established to assure ready accessibility of 
all academic programs, services, and activities, to any person with a disability matriculating 
at the University. Likewise, it focuses on facility accessibility. 

The Office serves as a liaison for all students with disabilities as they participate in pro- 
grams and activities enjoyed by all students. Additionally, the office arranges for any needed 
reasonable accommodations. Documentation is required. 

All information and services for persons with disabilities are handled through this office 
located in Suite 005, Murphy Hall. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these services. 

OFFICE OF CAREER SERVICES 

The Office of Career Services at North Carolina A&T State University has as its primary 
mission to provide a wide-range of programs, services, and resources in order to aid students 
in early career exploration, and to offer career assistance to alumni of the University. These 
services include the following: 

• Act as liaison between students and employers, acquainting them with career oppor- 
tunities. 

• Work with academic deans, faculty members and administrators to help bridge the gap 
between the classroom and the world of work. 

• Assist students through individual and group counseling. 

• Help students and alumni in identifying career search strategies. 

• Provide cooperative education experiences. 

Services are always performed with a conscientious and sincere interest in the students as 
well as the prospective employers. The Office of Career Services is located in Room 101, Mur- 
phy Hall. 

MINORITY AFFAIRS 

The Office of Minority Affairs was created in order to assist minority (white) students in 
the development and accomplishment of their educational goals. Housed in the Counseling 
Services Office, Minority Student Affairs is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is staffed 
by a Coordinator/Counselor. 



30 



The current percentage of minority (white) students is approximately 12% of the student 
population. This means about 850 minority students are enrolled at North Carolina A&T 
State University. 

OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENT AFFAIRS 

The Office of International Student Affairs provides services and programs for international 
students. The Office provides assistance with pre-arrival preparation, the admission process, 
housing, and immigration matters. Orientation and advisement are provided to assist stu- 
dents with their adjustment to the University and community. In cooperation with various 
departments and organizations, the office provides activities that enhance cultural, social, 
and personal development. 

Students are encouraged to promote multicultural understanding by participating in a vari- 
ety of activities in the Greensboro community. 

At present, 280 international students attend the University and they represent 48 countries. 

Eligibility for issuance of the Form 1-20 [Certificate of Eligibility for Non immigrant (F-l) 
Student Status for Academic and Language Students] is evaluated by the Office of Interna- 
tional Students, upon receipt of all official documents, including a financial guarantee. J-l 
non-immigrants must possess valid IAP-66s to matriculate at the University. Immigrants 
must show verification of their immigrant status (Form 1-551). 

Non-immigrant and immigrant students (international students) are required to verify their 
immigration status to the International Student Affairs Office before registering at the Uni- 
versity and notify the Office immediately of any change in their immigration status and 
address. Returning non-immigrants must update their files in the International Student Affairs 
Office within ten days of enrollment every semester. 

All non-immigrants are responsible for maintaining their legal immigration status. Non- 
immigrant students in F- 1 visa status are required by United States Immigration regulations 
to be enrolled full-time, except for the summer terms. Full-time enrollment is defined as 
enrollment every term in a minimum of 12 semester hours (undergraduate), or 9 semester 
hours (graduate). 

The legal regulations governing non-immigrant student employment are complex. The 
Director of the International Student Affairs Office is available to explain these regulations 
and verify who is eligible for employment. 

Non-immigrant students are required to maintain comprehensive health and accident insur- 
ance coverage that includes repatriation and medical evacuation. Students must purchase insur- 
ance on a semester basis during registration. The policy must have specific levels of coverage 
to ensure that it is adequate to provide for medical costs in the U.S. Students are advised not 
to purchase insurance policies prior to arrival unless it is coverage to cover the period from 
departure until enrollment in a new policy at the University. Government-sponsored students 
and students with pre-existing medical conditions who have insurance should not cancel their 
insurance in order to purchase the University recommended plan. These students should con- 
sult with the Director of International Student Affairs in regards to their coverage. 

A non-immigrant student is considered a non-resident and is assessed non-resident (out- 
of-state) fees. 

The office is located in Murphy Hall, Room 22 1 , at the corner of Nocho Street and S. G. 
Thomas Drive. The Telephone Number is (910) 334-7551.

RESIDENCE STATUS FOR TUITION PURPOSES 

The basis for determining the appropriate tuition charge rests upon whether a student is a 
resident or a nonresident for tuition purposes. Each student must make a statement as to the 
length of his or her residence in North Carolina, with assessment by the institution of that state- 
ment to be conditioned by the following. 

Residence. To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, a person must become a legal res- 
ident and remain a legal resident for at least twelve months immediately prior to classifica- 
tion. Thus, there is a distinction between legal residence and residence for tuition purposes. 
Furthermore, twelve months legal residence means more than simple abode in North Carolina. 
In particular, it means maintaining a domicile (permanent home of indefinite duration) as 
opposed to "maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode incident to enrollment in an 
institution of higher education." The burden of establishing facts which justify classification 
of a student as a resident entitled to in-state tuition rates is on the applicant, who must show 
his or her entitlement by the preponderance (the greater part) of the residentiary information. 

Initiative. Being classified a resident for tuition purposes is contingent on the student's 
seeking such status and providing all information that the institution may require in making 
the determination. 

Parents' Domicile. If an individual, irrespective of age, has living parents(s) or court- 
appointed guardian of the person, the domicile of such parent(s) or guardian is, prima facie, 
the domicile of the individual; but this prima facie evidence of the individual's domicile may 
or may not be sustained by other information. Further, nondomiciliary status of parents is 
not deemed prima facie evidence of the applicant child's status if the applicant has lived 
(though not necessarily legally resided) in North Carolina for the five years preceding enroll- 
ment or re-registration. 

Effect of Marriage. Marriage alone does not prevent a person from becoming or contin- 
uing to be a resident for tuition purposes, nor does marriage in any circumstance ensure that 
a person will become or continue to be a resident for tuition purposes. Marriage and the legal 
residence of one's spouse are, however, relevant information in determining residentiary intent. 
Furthermore, if both a husband and his wife are legal residents of North Carolina and if one 
of them has been a legal resident longer than the other, then the longer duration may be 
claimed by either spouse in meeting the twelve-month requirement for in-state tuition status. 

Military Personnel. A North Carolinian who serves outside the State in the armed forces 
does not lose North Caroline domicile simply by reason of such service. And students from 
the military may prove retention or establishment of residence by reference, as in other cases, 
to residentiary acts accompanied by residentiary intent. 

In addition, a separate North Carolina statute affords tuition rate benefits to certain mili- 
tary personnel and their dependents even though not qualifying for the in-state tuition rate by 
reason of twelve months legal residence in North Carolina. Members of the armed services, 
while stationed in and concurrently living in North Carolina, may be charged a tuition rate 
lower than the out-of-state tuition rate to the extent that the total of entitlements for applica- 
tion tuition costs available from the federal government, plus certain amounts based under a 
statutory formula upon the in-state tuition rate, is a sum less than the out-of-state tuition rate 
for the pertinent enrollment. A dependent relative of a service member stationed in North 
Carolina is eligible to be charged the in-state tuition rate while the dependent relative is liv- 
ing in North Carolina with the service member and if the dependent relative has met any 
requirement of the Selective Service System applicable to the dependent relative. These tuition 
benefits may be enjoyed only if the applicable requirements for admission have been met; these 



33 



benefits alone do not provide the basis for receiving those derivative benefits under the provi- 
sions of the residence classification status reviewed elsewhere in this summary. 

Grace Period. If a person ( 1 ) has been a bona fide legal resident, (2) has consequently 
been classified a resident for tuition purposes, and (3) has subsequently lost North Carolina 
legal residence while enrolled at a public institution of higher education, that person may 
continue to enjoy the in-state tuition rate for a grace period of twelve months measured from 
the date on which North Carolina legal residence was lost. If the twelve months ends during 
an academic term for which the person is enrolled at a State institution of higher education, 
the graccperiod extends, in addition, to the end of that term. The fact of marriage to one who 
continues domiciled outside North Carolina does not by itself cause loss of legal residence 
marking the beginning of the grace period. 

Minors. Minors (persons under 18 years of age) usually have the domicile of their parents, 
but certain special cases are recognized by the residence classification statute in determining 
residence for tuition purposes. 

(a) If a minor's parents live apart, the minor's domicile is deemed to be North Carolina 
for the time period(s) that either parent, as a North Carolina legal resident, may claim and does 
claim the minor as a tax dependent, even if other law or judicial act assigns the minor's domi- 
cile outside North Carolina. A minor thus deemed to be a legal resident will not, upon achiev- 
ing majority before enrolling at an institution of higher education, lose North Carolina legal 
residence if that person ( 1 ) upon becoming an adult "acts, to the extent that the person's 
degree of actual emancipation permits, in a manner consistent with bona fide legal residence 
in North Carolina" and (2) "begins enrollment at an institution of higher education not later 
than the fall academic term following completion of education prerequisite to admission at 
such institution." 

(b) If a minor has lived for five or more consecutive years with relatives (other than par- 
ents) who are domiciled in North Carolina and if the relatives have functioned during this time 
as if they were personal guardians, the minor will be deemed a resident for tuition purposes 
for an enrolled term commencing immediately after at least five years in which these cir- 
cumstances have existed. If under this consideration a minor is deemed to be a resident for 
tuition purposes immediately prior to his or her eighteenth birthday, that person on achieving 
majority will be deemed a legal resident of North Carolina of at least twelve months dura- 
tion. This provision acts to confer in-state tuition status even in the face of other provisions 
of law to the contrary; however, a person deemed a resident of twelve months duration pur- 
suant to this provision continues to be a legal resident of the State only so long as he or she 
does not abandon North Caroline domicile. 

Lost but Regained Domicile. If a student ceases enrollment at or graduates from an insti- 
tution of higher education while classified a resident for tuition purposes and then both aban- 
dons and reacquires North Carolina domicile within a 12-month period, that person, if he or 
she continues to maintain the reacquired domicile into re-enrollment at an institution of higher 
education, may re-enroll at the in-state tuition rate without having to meet the usual twelve- 
month durational requirement. However, any one person may receive the benefit of the pro- 
vision only once. 

Change of Status. A student admitted to initial enrollment in an institution (or permitted 
to re-enroll following an absence from the institutional program which involved a formal 
withdrawal from enrollment) must be classified by the admitting institution either as a resi- 
dent or as a nonresident for tuition purposes prior to actual enrollment. A residence status 
classification once assigned (and finalized pursuant to any appeal properly taken) may be 



34 



changed thereafter (with corresponding change in billing rates) only at intervals corresponding 
with the established primary divisions of the academic year. 

Transfer Students. When a student transfers from one North Carolina public institution 
of higher education to another, he or she is treated as a new student by the institution to which 
he or she is transferring and must be assigned an initial residence status classification for 
tuition purposes. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Graduate Assistants 

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available to qualified individuals. The 
student is assigned to assist a professor or a department fifteen hours per week for the dura- 
tion of the assistantship. Some graduate assistants are assigned to teach freshman classes. 
Normally, a graduate assistant will be assigned to teach only one class per semester, but he/she 
may be assigned to teach a maximum of two. The assistantship offers a stipend that will assist 
a student to pay required tuition, fees, books, board, and lodging. Application for an assist- 
antship must be made to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies at least five months 
before fall registration. Only full-time graduate students are eligible. 

Other Assistance 

Funds, such as the National Direct Student Loan Fund, are available in limited quantity 
for students. Requests for information concerning these funds should be directed to the School 
of Graduate Studies. The newest kind of financial assistance available is the Minority Pres- 
ence Grant Program — General Program. The University will continue to fund the Minor- 
ity Presence Grant Program — General Program, Part I and Part II. The University will 
allocate this money to historically white and historically black institutions to aid them in 
recruiting financially needy North Carolina students who would be minority presence students 
at the respective institutions by enabling the institutions to offer relatively more aid for minor- 
ity presence students in the form of grants rather than loans. General Program Part I includes 
funds for minority presence grants for students attending the North Carolina Central Uni- 
versity School of Law. General Program Part II consists of grant funds for Native Ameri- 
cans, Hispanics, and Asians. 

The Minority Presence Grant Program for Doctoral Study provides stipends of up to 
$4,000 for the academic year, with an option of $500 in additional support for study in the 
summer session, for white residents of North Carolina who are selected to participate. Recip- 
ients must be full-time students pursuing doctoral degrees at North Carolina A&T State 
University. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

Entering Students: A student entering the University as a graduate student should apply 
for financial aid at the same time he/she applies for admission. A financial aid award will not 
be made until a student is admitted to the University. Therefore it is important that the admis- 
sion procedure be completed as soon as possible. Any student who is admitted to the Uni- 
versity as a "Special Student" or "Non-Degree Intent" student is not eligible to receive financial 
assistance. The student must petition the Dean of Graduate Studies to have his/her status 
reviewed and changed, if applicable. 

Transfer Graduate Students. A student who has previously attended another postsecondary 
school, college, or university must submit a Financial Aid Transcript to document his/her finan- 



35 



cial aid status at the previous school. A separate transcript must be completed for each school 
previously attended. 

Graduate Students. A graduate student who applies for financial aid is eligible to be con- 
sidered only for loan assistance and for campus employment. Information about graduate 
assistantships may be obtained from the Graduate School Office. To be considered for finan- 
cial assistance, a graduate student cannot be admitted under any "special circumstances" and 
must maintain a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average to remain eligible for loans. 
Graduate students must submit Financial Aid Transcripts from all schools previously attended. 

All applicants must re-apply for financial assistance each academic year and separately 
for a summer session. 

EXPENSES 

The fee charged to a full-time student carrying nine or more semester hours of work is the 
same as that charged to a full-time undergraduate student. For one academic year, a state res- 
ident should expect to pay approximately $1 ,561 .00 which will cover tuition and course fees; 
this sum does not include room and board charges. Tuition and course fees for an out-of- 
state student carrying a full schedule will total $8,7 1 5.00 for the academic year. Current room 
and board rates are $1 ,565.00 per semester. 

As student fees are subject to change without prior notice, it is suggested that the Cashier's 
Office be consulted for complete information concerning charges for full and part-time students. 

Special Fees 

Fee for processing application 

(required only for first application for graduate studies) $25.00 

Late Registration 20.00 

Graduation fees: 

Diploma 15.00 

Regalia 20.00

Auditing 

To audit a course, a student must obtain permission from the Dean of the School of Grad- 
uate Studies and must submit the necessary forms during the registration period. A part-time 
student must pay all fees, including tuition, that would be charged to a student taking the 
course for credit. A full-time student is not required to pay any additional fees for auditing. 
A change from credit registration to audit will not be permitted after late registration ends. 
An auditor is not required to participate in class discussions, prepare assignments, or take 
examinations. 

SCHEDULE OF DEADLINES 

The School of Graduate Studies provides schedules of specific dates for completing various 
requirements for a degree program. These notices are not sent to the individual automati- 
cally, but may be found in the calendar of the School of Graduate Studies, available upon request.

GENERAL REGULATIONS 



ADVISING 

Until he/she is assigned to an advisor after he/she has been accepted as a candidate in a 
degree program, a graduate student is advised by a member of the graduate faculty in his/her 
major department or by the department chair. The student, however, should consult and fol- 
low the curriculum guide prepared for his/her area of concentration. Separate curriculum 
guide sheets are available in the office of the department offering the concentration. 

"Special" students are advised by members of the graduate faculty appointed by the Dean 
of the School of Graduate Studies. 

CLASS LOADS 

Full-Time Students 

Class loads for the full-time student may range from 9 to 15 semester hours during a reg- 
ular session of the academic year. The maximum load is 15 semester hours. 

In-Service Teachers 

The maximum load for a fully employed in-service teacher must not exceed six semester 
hours during any academic year. 

University Staff 

The maximum load for any fully employed member of the university faculty or staff will 
be six semester hours for the academic year. 

CONCURRENT REGISTRATION IN OTHER INSTITUTIONS 

A student registered in a degree program in this School of Graduate Studies may not enroll 
concurrently in another graduate school except upon permission, secured in advance, from 
the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Grades for graduate students are recorded as follows: A, excellent; B, average; C, below 
average; F, failure; S, work in progress (for courses in research); I, INCOMPLETE; W, 
withdrawal. 

1 . In order to earn a degree, a student must have a cumulative average of "B" (a grade point 
average of 3.0 on a system in which 1 hour of "A" earns 4 grade points). 

2. A graduate student automatically goes on probation when his/her cumulative average 
falls below "B." 

3. A student may be dropped from the degree program if he/she has not been removed from 
probation after two successive terms as a full-time student. 

4. A student may not repeat a required course in which "C" or above was earned. 

5. A student may repeat a required course in which "F' was earned. A student may not 
repeat the course more than once. If a student fails a second time, he/she is dismissed 
from the degree program. 

6. All hours attempted in graduate courses and all grade points earned are included in the 
computation of the cumulative average of a graduate student. 



38 



7. A student who stops attending a course but fails to withdraw officially may be assigned 
a grade of "F." 

8. All grades of "I" must be removed during the student's next term of enrollment. 

9. A student may not count towards a degree program any course in which a grade of "F' 
was earned. 

NOTE: The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction does not accept courses in 
which a student has received a "D" or "F" for renewal of certification. 

GRADUATE PROGRAMS REQUIRING CLASS A LICENSURE 
AND LICENSURE ONLY 

Students applying for graduate degree programs in elementary education, reading edu- 
cation, instructional technology, technology education, and secondary education programs are 
required to possess or be eligible to possess the Class A license. Eligibility for the Class G 
(graduate level) licensure requires an individual to possess the initial Class A licensure. 

Elementary Education 

Individuals pursuing the M.S. degree in Elementary Education must satisfy requirements 
for the Class A licensure in elementary education. Students who have earned some, but not 
all undergraduate credits for elementary education and students without the A license in the 
area of elementary education (K-6) should consult with the Elementary Education Coordi- 
nator or the Chairperson in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to design a pro- 
gram of study that addresses requirements for the initial license. This program of study 
supplements the graduate degree requirements in this teaching specialty area. Students may 
be required to enroll in undergraduate courses in education and student teaching to fulfill 
licensure requirements. 

Reading Education 

The reading education program requires the student to possess a Class A license in any 
teaching specialty area. If an individual does not possess the license, one must meet with the 
Reading Coordinator or Chairperson in the Department of Curriculum to design a Class A 
licensure program of study before being admitted unconditionally to pursue the M.S. degree 
in Reading Education. Students may be required to enroll in undergraduate courses in edu- 
cation and a specialty area to fulfill licensure requirements. Students may be required to enroll 
in undergraduate courses in education and student teaching to fulfill licensure requirements. 
See other requirements cited in the section, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Read- 
ing Education. 

Instructional Technology 

Students interested in the M.S. degree in Instructional Technology and the 076 (Media 
Coordinator) licensure must possess an initial Class A teaching license. Individuals without 
this license must meet with the Instructional Technology Coordinator or the Chairperson in 
the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to design a Class A licensure program of study 
before being admitted unconditionally to pursue the M.S. degree in Instructional Technology. 
Students may be required to enroll in undergraduate courses in education and student teach- 
ing to fulfill licensure requirements. 

Technology Education 

Students may enter the graduate program in the area of Technology Education without a 
Class A Certificate. If the Class G license is sought by the applicant, the student must con- 
sult with the Graduate Coordinator in the Department of Graphics Communication Systems 



39 



and Technological Studies to design a program of study to satisfy Class A and/or Class G 
licensure. Students may be required to enroll in undergraduate courses in education and tech- 
nical options to fulfill licensure requirements. If the Class A and/or Class G licensures are not 
sought by the student, then consultation with the Graduate Coordinator is necessary to deter- 
mine the appropriate course of study required to satisfy the M.S. degree. A student may suc- 
cessfully complete the Master's degree under the supervision of the Department of Graphics 
Communication Systems and Technological Studies without being required to meet state 
licensure requirements for the Class A or G licenses. 

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR LICENSURE 

The Professional Education component for students who enter graduate study without the 
required credits in education courses and who are pursuing a teaching program in secondary 
education must complete a minimum of 24 semester hours which may include the following 
undergraduate/graduate level courses: CUIN 400, Psychological Foundations of Education 
or HDSV 726, Educational Psychology; CUIN 625, Theory of American Public Education 
or CUIN 701 , Philosophy of Education; CUIN 500, Principles and Curricula of Secondary 
Schools or CUIN 720, Curriculum Development; CUIN 624, Teaching Reading in the Sec- 
ondary School; and CUIN 560, Observation and Student Teaching. 

LICENSURE ONLY PROGRAMS 

Individuals may be admitted to the School of Graduate Studies for licensure (certifica- 
tion) only. These persons are admitted for the sole purpose of satisfying North Carolina teach- 
ing licensure requirements. Individuals must possess an earned undergraduate degree and 
upon acceptance for this purpose, confer with the respective area coordinator or department 
chairperson to design a program of study. Students pursuing licensure only must apply for 
admission to the Teacher Education Program prior to pursuing the student teaching require- 
ment. Information regarding the Teacher Education Program is available through the Office 
of the Dean, School of Education.

REGULATIONS FOR A MASTER'S DEGREE 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY FOR A DEGREE 

Admission to graduate studies does not guarantee admission to candidacy for a degree. In 
order to be qualified as a candidate for a master's degree, a student must have a minimum over- 
all average of 3 .0 in at least nine semester hours of graduate work at A&T, must have removed 
all deficiencies resulting from undergraduate preparation, and must have passed the Quali- 
fying Essay. Some departments require additional qualifying examinations. 

In order to be classified as a candidate for a Master of Science in Engineering degree, a 
student must have a minimum overall average of 3.0 in at least nine semester hours of approved 
graduate work at A&T and must have removed all deficiencies resulting from undergradu- 
ate preparation. 

The following is the procedure for securing admission to candidacy: 

1. The student secures application forms for admission to candidacy from the Graduate 
Office, fills them out, and returns them to that office. This step should be taken as soon 
as possible after the student has decided upon a degree program. 

2. The Graduate Office processes the application, notifies the student of the action, and 
informs him/her of the time when the Qualifying Essay will next be administered. 

3. The student may take the Qualifying Essay during the first term of residence in graduate 
studies. If a students fails the Qualifying Essay, he/she may take it a second time. After 
a second failure the student must enroll in a prescribed English composition course (Eng- 
lish 300 for 62 1 ) at this university and must earn a grade of "C" or above. 

4. The Graduate Office informs the student of any qualifying examinations required by the 
department in which he is concentrating his studies. 

5. After the student has completed at least nine semester hours of graduate study at the col- 
lege, he/she becomes eligible for admission to candidacy. If, at that time, he/she has main- 
tained an average of 3.0 in graduate studies and has passed the Qualifying Essay and all 
departmental qualifying examinations, the Graduate School informs the student that 
he/she has been admitted to candidacy and assigns him/her to an advisor in his/her field 
of concentration; 

In order to be eligible for graduation during a term, a student must have been admitted to can- 
didacy no less than fifteen days prior to the deadline for filing for graduation during that term. 

CREDIT REQUIREMENTS 

The minimum credit requirements for a master's degree are thirty semester hours for stu- 
dents in thesis and non-thesis programs. It is expected that a student can complete a program 
by studying full-time for an academic year and one additional summer term or by studying 
full-time during four nine-week summer sessions. 

The minimum credit requirements for a Master of Science in Engineering are thirty semes- 
ter hours for students who elect to take the thesis option and thirty-three semester hours for 
students who take the non-thesis option. 

RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of three-fourths of the hours required for the master's degree must be earned 
in residence study at the University. 



41 



THE PLAN OF STUDY 

The master's degree candidate must submit a Plan of Study during the term in which the 
candidate will complete 15 or more credits toward the degree sought. If the 15 credits will 
be completed at the end of a regular semester, the Plan of Study must be submitted five work- 
ing days before registration for the following semester. If the 15 credits will be completed at 
the end of the summer session, the Plan of Study should be filed within five working days 
following fall registration. The Plan of Study shows committee chairperson, other commit- 
tee members, and a sequence of courses approved by the student's advisor. Each committee 
member's signature on the Plan of Study indicates approval for the Plan of Study. Upon 
approval by the School of Graduate Studies the Plan becomes the student's official guide to 
completing his/her program. Any changes in the Plan of Study or exceptions to the schedule 
for submission of the Plan must be approved by the committee and the Dean of the School 
of Graduate Studies. 

DECLARATION OF MAJOR 

A graduate student shall declare and complete the requirements of one master's degree pro- 
gram before declaring another major. This does not prevent a student from changing a dec- 
laration of major. 

TIME LIMITATION 

The master's degree program must be completed within six successive calendar years. 
Programs remaining incomplete after this time interval are subject to cancellation, revision, 
or special examination for out-dated work. Students enrolled in doctoral programs (Electrical 
and Mechanical Engineering) should see the appropriate section of the Graduate Bulletin for 
details regarding the maximum time allowed to complete the degree programs. 

When the program of study is interrupted because the student has been drafted into the 
armed services, the time limit shall be extended for the length of time the student shall have 
been on active duty, if the candidate resumes graduate work no later than one year following 
his/her release from military service. 

COURSE LEVELS 

At the University, the department prefix, followed by a three-digit number, is used to des- 
ignate all course offerings. The first digit indicates the classification level of the course. 
Courses numbered 600 through 699 are open to seniors and to graduate students. Courses 
numbered 700 and above are open only to graduate students. At least fifty percent of the 
courses counted in the work towards a master's degree must be those open only to graduate 
students; that is, numbered 700 and above. 

TRANSFER OF CREDIT 

A maximum of six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred from another 
graduate institution if ( 1 ) the work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable degree at the 
institution from which transfer is sought, and (2) the courses to be transferred are approved 
by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. 

To request a transfer or credit, the student must complete an application in the School of 
Graduate Studies Office. It will be the applicant's responsibility to request from the appro- 
priate institution(s) a statement certifying that the work is acceptable as credit toward a com- 



42 



parable degree. The transcript should then be sent to the School of Graduate Studies Office 
of A&T State University. 

FINAL COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION 

Students enrolled in a master's degree program or a doctoral degree program may be tested 
by a comprehensive examination to determine the students' knowledge and skills in a gen- 
eral subject matter area of concentration. The comprehensive examination date will be 
announced by the departmental graduate committee chairperson at the beginning of the semes- 
ter. This examination will be administered to the enrolled student by an examining commit- 
tee of the department. Eligibility to sit for the examination will be determined by the 
departmental graduate committee and the results of the examination will be forwarded to the 
School of Graduate Studies Office no later than 30 days prior to the end of the semester. 

OPTIONS FOR DEGREE PROGRAM 

The student, in consultation with his/her advisor, selects the degree program to be fol- 
lowed. The advisor must notify the chairperson of the department of the program plan which 
the candidate prefers to follow. 

Graduate Advisement Committee 

The student selects his/her Graduate Advisement Committee. The Committee shall con- 
sist of the advisor and additional members to a total of three or five. One member should be 
a university faculty member from outside the student's major department. The Graduate 
Advisement Committee shall be responsible for approval of the Plan of Study and the Research 
Plan, inclusive of the thesis. The Graduate Advisement Committee must be approved by the 
Department and the School of Graduate Studies. 

Thesis Option 

In order for a student to pursue a thesis program, he/she must be recommended to the 
Dean of the School of Graduate Studies by his/her advisor and the chairperson of the depart- 
ment in which a student is concentrating his/her studies. The School of Graduate Studies 
must then approve the student as a candidate. The thesis program consists of thirty semester 
hours including the thesis. After receiving written approval to follow the thesis option, the can- 
didate shall prepare and present the thesis proposal to the advisor. Following acceptance of 
the proposal, the advisor must submit to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies an 
approved copy of the proposal in its final form. Individuals who have been granted the priv- 
ilege of following the thesis option are expected to demonstrate research competencies and 
to prepare a scholarly account of resulting data. 

A copy of the thesis must be filed with the School of Graduate Studies six weeks before 
the end of the semester in which work is completed. An oral defense of the thesis is required 
and scheduled by the candidate's thesis advisor. An affirmative vote by a majority of the com- 
mittee after the oral examination is necessary for the candidate to pass. 

The Research Plan 

Those students who choose a thesis option plan of study are required to submit their The- 
sis Research Plan which must be approved by the Graduate Advisement Committee and filed 
with the School of Graduate Studies. Any changes in the Thesis Research Plan must be 
approved by the Committee and filed with the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. 



43 



Non-Thesis Option 

The non-thesis plan is offered to the candidate who may benefit more from a broader 
range of studies than from the preparation of a thesis. The program of study must consist of 
a minimum of 30 credit hours of prescribed courses. 

Individuals who are following this plan must demonstrate their ability to conduct and to 
report the results of original research by preparing a paper as a part of the course Special 
Problems or Research or Seminar in the appropriate area. 

Thesis Option (Master of Science in Engineering) 

In order for a student to pursue a thesis program, he/she must be recommended to the 
Dean of the School of Graduate Studies by the Dean of the College of Engineering. The 
School of Graduate Studies must then approve the student as a candidate. The thesis pro- 
gram consists of thirty semester hours including the thesis. After receiving written approval 
to follow the thesis option, the candidate shall prepare and present the thesis proposal to the 
chairperson of his/her Advisory Committee. Following acceptance of the proposal, an 
approved copy of the proposal in its final form must be submitted to the Dean of the School 
of Graduate Studies. 

The Non-Thesis Option (Master of Science in Engineering) 

The non-thesis plan is offered to the candidate who may benefit more from a broader 
range of studies than from the preparation of a thesis. The program of study must consist of 
a minimum of 33 credit hours of prescribed courses. 

MASTER'S THESIS AND FORMAT 

The following are regulations for a Master's thesis and the format of the thesis: 

1 . A student writing a thesis must register for the course, Thesis, prior to the semester in 
which he/she expects to take the final examination. 

2. Three word-processed copies of the completed thesis must be submitted to the Dean of 
the School of Graduate Studies, together with two copies of an abstract of the thesis. The 
abstract should be 400 to 500 words. Consult the School of Graduate Studies' calendar 
for deadline dates regarding submission of these manuscripts. 

3. Additional information concerning the format is available in the School of Graduate Stud- 
ies Office. 

APPLICATION FOR GRADUATION 

The student must be enrolled during the session in which he/she graduates. The student 
must apply for graduation no later than two weeks after the beginning of the session. The 
closing date for applications will be announced in the academic calendar. Failure to meet the 
deadline may result in delay of graduation for the candidate.

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION 

The general test of the Graduate Record Examination is required for admission or as part 
of the completion requirements for some programs. When it is required, the GRE must have 
been taken within the last five years. Applicants must request the testing service to forward 
the results to the School of Graduate Studies. The following departments require the GRE as 
part of the completion requirements: Animal Science, Biology, Chemistry, Curriculum and 
Instruction, English, Human Environment and Family Sciences, Physical Education, Math- 
ematics, and Natural Resources and Environmental Design (formerly Plant Science and Tech- 
nology). Applicants should check the individual departments in the appropriate section of 
the Graduate Bulletin to determine specific requirements. 

SECOND MASTER'S DEGREE 

The School of Graduate Studies of North Carolina A&T State University provides an oppor- 
tunity for a student holding a master's degree to earn a second master's degree in another dis- 
cipline or specialty. To be admitted for a second master's degree, the student files the appropriate 
admission application, submits official transcripts, and provides pertinent examination scores. 

During the first semester, the student makes application for candidacy. In the last semes- 
ter of courses, the student files for the comprehensive examination in the new specialty. In 
collaboration with the advisor, the student plans the new program to include a minimum of 
18 semester hours in the new specialty to be taken in the University. Twelve hours will be 
accepted from the first master's providing that degree was completed at North Carolina A&T 
State University. If the student is a transfer student, twenty-four hours must be completed in 
the new program since University regulations allow only six semester hours to be accepted 
in transfer credits. 

The student taking a second master's degree in a non-teaching field must fulfill the courses 
appropriate to that field. 

ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY CONCERNING CHANGES IN 
REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN DEGREE PROGRAMS 

Generally, a student is permitted to graduate according to the requirements specified either 
in the catalogue current during the year of his/her first application for candidacy or in the 
catalogue current during the year of his/her application for graduation. If more than six years 
pass between the student's application for candidacy and his application for graduation, the 
university reserves the right to require the student to satisfy the regulations in effect at the time 
of his/her application for graduation. In all instances, the School of Graduate Studies reserves 
the right to require students in programs in Agricultural Education, Education, or Technology 
Education to satisfy the requirements specified by the North Carolina Department of Public 
Instruction at the time of the student's completion of the requirements for the Master of Sci- 
ence degree. 

COMMENCEMENT 

Diplomas are awarded only at the commencement exercises following completion of all 
requirements for the degree. Attendance at Commencement is required of all graduating stu- 
dents unless individually excused by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. 



45 



ADDITIONAL REGULATIONS 

Additional rules, regulations, and standards for each of the areas of graduate study appear 
in the appropriate sections of the catalogue. The prospective student should read such sec- 
tions with care. 

REGULATIONS FOR THE DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY DEGREE 

The Doctor of Philosophy Degree (Ph.D.) is offered in Electrical and Mechanical Engi- 
neering. For details concerning admission to the program, see the section on "Admission 
and Other Information" elsewhere in this catalogue. Although general policies related to 
the Ph.D. program are listed below, the student should consult the respective departmental 
handbook for more details. 

Qualifying Examination 

This is a written examination required of all Ph.D. students scheduled each semester. The 
qualifying examination must be passed prior to the end of the third semester. Provisional stu- 
dents cannot sit for the qualifying examination. They must first gain a status change to uncon- 
ditional admission. Consult the departmental handbook for details. 

Preliminary Examination 

The preliminary examination is given in the semester following completion of all required 
coursework. In this oral examination, the student is asked about graduate coursework and 
subject matter related to the specialization. It is also a presentation and defense of the pro- 
posed dissertation topic. Consult the departmental handbook for details. 

Admission to Candidacy 

Admission to candidacy is given once the student has completed and passed all parts of 
the preliminary examination. Consult the departmental handbook for details. 

Final Oral Examination 

The final oral is scheduled after the dissertation is complete. It consists of the defense of 
the methodology used and the conclusion reached in the research. Consult the departmental 
handbook for details. 

Residence Requirement and Doctor of Philosophy Time Limit 

Two residence credits must be earned. In addition, the doctoral student has a maximum 
of six calendar years from admission to attain candidacy and ten calendar years to complete 
all requirements. The thesis must be completed in five years after admission to candidacy. Con- 
sult the departmental handbook for details. 

Credit Completion Requirements 

A minimum of 24 course credits and 1 2 dissertation credits beyond the Master of Science 
are required. Consult the departmental handbook for details. 

Interinstitutional Doctor of Philosophy Program 

North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina State University, and the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina at Charlotte all participate in an interinstitutional Ph.D. program. Stu- 
dents seeking admission to such a cooperative program must satisfy all admission and degree 
requirements at the university where the Ph.D. will be issued as well as those of the student's 
home institution. Details are available at each of these departments. 



46 



ACADEMIC INFORMATION AND REGULATIONS 

Each student is responsible for informing himself or herself of the academic regulations 
and requirements set forth in this Bulletin and for revisions of same as posted on campus 
bulletin boards or released in other official publications of the University. Failure to meet the 
requirements or comply with regulations because of lack of knowledge thereof does not 
excuse the student from meeting the academic regulations and requirements. 

A student's program of study must be approved by his or her advisor, his or her chair- 
person, or a member of the faculty in his or her major department at registration. Advisors 
will make every attempt to give effective guidance to students in academic matters and to 
refer students to those qualified to help them in other matters. However, the final responsi- 
bility for meeting all academic requirements for a selected program rests with the student. 

COURSES OF STUDY 

A student should refer to the requirements of his/her respective department or school for 
his/her program of study and confer with his/her advisor whenever problems arise. The stu- 
dent is expected to follow the program outlined as closely as possible. 

REGISTRATION 

Registration is a time designated each semester to allow the student and his or her advi- 
sor to review the student's records and plan a program for the next semester. 

The student has an opportunity to discuss academic problems with the advisor. Registra- 
tion helps to ensure that the courses requested on the registered schedule will be available to 
the student the following semester. 

Any student who is enrolled in the University during the registration period is expected 
to register during the period designated for this purpose. 

OFFICIAL REGISTRATION 

In order for a student to get credit for a course, he or she must be properly registered in 
that course. This means that the student must have gone through the registration procedures 
as outlined by the University. Further, the student must have filed with the Office of the Reg- 
istrar the required class schedule and paid all required tuition and fees. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

A student is expected to complete enrollment (including the payment of all required fees) 
on the dates listed on the University Calendar. The payment of fees is part of the registration 
process. No student is eligible to attend classes until the required fees have been paid. 

A student who fails to complete registration during the scheduled dates will be required 
to pay a late registration fee of $20.00. 



47 



AUDITORS 

A regular student may audit a course by picking up the Audit Form from the Office of the 
Registrar. He or she must register officially for the course and pay the University Cashier. 

Attendance, preparation, and participation in the classroom discussion and laboratory 
exercises shall be at the discretion of the instructor. 

A student who audits courses is not required to take examinations and tests and he/she 
receives no credit. An auditor may not change his or her registration from audit to credit or 
from credit to audit after late registration ends. 

CHANGE OF GRADE 

A request for a change of grade, for any reason, must be made within one year following 
the date the original grade was assigned by the faculty member. 

GRADE APPEAL 

A student may appeal the final grade earned in a course. Initially, the student should attempt 
to resolve the matter informally through the instructor of the course, the department chair- 
person, and/or dean of the academic unit in which the grade was assigned. If the matter is not 
resolved through this level of interaction, then the student should consult the individual 
school/college on their written grade appeal policy. A student wishing to pursue a written 
appeal of a grade must demonstrate a legitimate basis for the appeal. Grade appeals are final 
at the level of the school/college. 

CHANGES IN SCHEDULE 

A change in a student's program may be made with the consent of his or her advisor or 
department chairperson. However, if a student's schedule is changed after the designated 
period for adding and/or dropping courses, the consent of the School Dean is required. 

The student must obtain and properly execute the Change of Schedule Form. This form 
is obtained from the Office of the Registrar and should be returned to that office. 

CHANGING SCHOOLS 

Students may transfer from one School of the University to another with the written 
approval and acceptance of the Deans of the Schools involved. The proper forms on which 
to apply for such a change are to be obtained from the Office of the Registrar and executed 
at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester in which the student plans to trans- 
fer. When such a transfer is made, students must satisfy the current academic requirements 
of the school and/or department to which students transfer. 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY 

A student who wishes, or is asked, to leave the University at any time during the semes- 
ter shall execute and file official withdrawal forms. These forms may be obtained from the 
University Counseling and Testing Center. They should be completed and submitted to the 
Office of the Registrar. 

A student who withdraws from the University within 15 calendar days of the beginning 
of the final examination period for the semester shall receive a "W" in all classes enrolled. 
Failure to execute and file these forms in a timely manner will result in a student receiving 
an "F" for each course in which he or she was enrolled during the semester in question. 



48 



INCOMPLETES 

A student is expected to complete all requirements of a particular course during the semes- 
ter in which he or she is registered. However, if at the end of the semester a small portion of 
the work remains unfinished and should be deferred because of some serious circumstances 
beyond the control of the student, an "I" may be submitted. 

An "I" for a prolonged illness may be submitted only after the written approval of the 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs has been secured. An "I" for other causes may be sub- 
mitted only with the approval of the Dean of the School. 

Along with the recording of the incomplete grade, the instructor must also file with the 
head of the department, the student's average grade and a written description of the work 
which must be completed before the incomplete is removed. 

Procedure for the Removal of an Incomplete 

An incomplete grade must be removed within SIX WEEKS after the beginning of the 
next semester. If the student has not removed the incomplete within the time specified, the 
Incomplete is automatically changed to an "F\ Developmental, thesis, and research courses 
are exempted from the six week time limit. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE POLICY 

Class Attendance 

The University is committed to the principle that regular and punctual class attendance is 
essential to the students' optimum scholastic achievement. An absence, excused or unex- 
cused, does not relieve the student of any course requirement. 

Regular class attendance is a student obligation, and a student is responsible for all the 
work, including tests and written work, of all class meetings. 

Instructor's Responsibility 

1) Description of attendance requirements should be stated in the course syllabus and 
announced in class, particularly at the beginning of each term. If class attendance is 
to affect a student's course grade, then a statement to that effect must be a part of the 
course syllabus distributed to each student. 

2) Instructors will keep attendance records in all classes. Each instructor has the right to 
prescribe procedures as to how and when attendance will be taken. 

Student's Responsibility 

It is the responsibility of each student to learn and comply with the requirements set by 
the instructor for each class in which one is registered. The student should 

1) have knowledge of each instructor's attendance and monitoring practices for class 
absences during the term. 

2) become familiar with all materials covered in each course during absences and make- 
up any work required by the instructor. 

3) initiate the request to make-up work on the first day of class attendance after the absence. 

Policy on Make-Up of Required Course Work 

The administration, faculty, and staff recognize, that there are circumstances and events 
which require students to miss classes and required course work which may be performed 
or required due on the day of the absence. Also they recognize that required course work is 
needed to give each student an adequate performance evaluation. Therefore, whenever 



49 



reasonable (and more specifically described below), students should be allowed to make up 
required work. 

The following definitions will apply with respect to this policy: 

a) Required course work — All work which will be used in the determination of final 
grades; e.g., examinations, announced quizzes, required papers and essays, required 
assignments. 

b) Instructor — Person responsible for the course and providing instruction and eval- 
uation. 

c) Permissible reasons for requesting make-up of required work — Sickness (verifica- 
tion needed); death of relatives (immediate family); participation in approved Uni- 
versity related activities; acting in the capacity of a representative of the University 
(band, choir, sports related travel, etc.); and extraordinary circumstances (court appear- 
ance, family emergency, etc.) require a signed statement. NOTE: Other reasons for 
requesting make-up of required course work are not acceptable. 

GRADE REPORTS 

As soon as they are determined at the end of each semester or summer term, a report of 
grades is sent to the student at his or her permanent home address. 

PRIVACY OF STUDENT RECORDS 

The University ensures students access to their official academic records but prohibits the 
release of personally identifiable information, other than "directory information," from these 
records without their permission, except as specified by public law 93-380. "Directory infor- 
mation" includes: Student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, school, 
major, sex, marital status, dates of attendance, degree received, honors received, institution 
(s) attended prior to admission to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, 
past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities, and physical fac- 
tors. Public Law 93-380 further provides that any student may, upon written request, restrict 
the printing of such personal information relating to himself or herself as is usually included 
in campus directories. A student who desires to have "directory information" withheld must 
submit a written request to the Office of The Registrar one week before the beginning of 
classes for the semester or session in which he or she is enrolled. 

ACCESS TO STUDENT RECORDS 

1 . The policy for the administration of student academic records is in accordance with the 
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. 

2. A student has the right to inspect and review any and all official records, files, and data 
directly related to him or her. 

3. A student who believes that his or her record contains inaccurate or misleading infor- 
mation shall have an opportunity for a hearing to challenge the content of the record, to 
ensure that the record is not inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of his or 
her privacy or rights, and to provide an opportunity for the correction or deletion of any 
such inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise inappropriate data contained therein or for the 
inclusion of student's own statement of explanation. 

4. The University will comply with a request from a student to review his or her record within 
a reasonable period of time and not later than thirty (30) days after the request is received. 



50 



5. The release of academic records requires the written permission of the student, except as 
provided by Public Law 93380. Transcripts are not issued to a student who has not met 
his or her financial obligations to the University. 

6. Copies of the "University's Statement" concerning access to students' records are avail- 
able in the Office of The Registrar, the office of each school dean and department 
chairperson. 

CHANGE OF NAME AND ADDRESS 

It is the obligation of every student to notify the Office of The Registrar of any change in 
name or address. Failure to do so can cause serious delay in the handling of the student's 
records and in notification of emergencies at home. 

TRANSCRIPTS OF RECORDS 

Requests for transcripts of students' records should be addressed to the University Reg- 
istrar. The cost is $2.00 per copy. 

INDEBTEDNESS TO THE UNIVERSITY 

No diploma, certificate or transcript of a record will be issued to a student who has not made 
a satisfactory settlement with the cashier for all indebtedness to the University. A student 
may not be permitted to attend classes or final examinations after the due date of any unpaid 
obligation. 

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY POLICY 

North Carolina A&T State University is committed to a policy of academic honesty for 
all students. Examples of Academic Dishonesty include but are not limited to the following: 

• Cheating or knowingly assisting another student in committing an act of academic dis- 
honesty. 

• Plagiarism (unauthorized use of another person's words or ideas as one's own) which 
includes but is not necessarily limited to submitting examinations, theses, reports, draw- 
ings, laboratory notes, or other materials as one's own work when such work has been 
prepared by another person or copied from another person. 

• Unauthorized possession of examinations or reserve library materials, destruction or 
hiding of source materials, library materials, or laboratory materials, or experiments, or 
any other similar action. 

• Unauthorized changing of grades or marking on an examination or in an instructor's 
grade book, or such change of any grade record. 

• Aiding or abetting in the infraction of any of the provisions anticipated under the gen- 
eral standards of student conduct. 

• Assisting another student in violating any of the above rules. 

A student who has committed an act of academic dishonesty has failed to meet a basic 
requirement of satisfactory academic performance. Thus, academic dishonesty is not only a 
basis for disciplinary action but may also affect the evaluation of the student's level of per- 
formance. Any student who commits an act of academic dishonesty is subject to disciplinary 
action as defined below. 



51 



In instances where a student has clearly been identified as having committed an academic 
act of dishonesty, the instructor may take appropriate punitive action including a loss of credit 
for an assignment, an examination or project, or awarding a grade of "F' for the course sub- 
ject to the review and endorsement of the chairperson and the dean. Repeated offenses can 
even lead to dismissal from the University. 

Student Appeals on Academic Dishonesty 

A student who feels unfairly treated as a result of an academic dishonesty matter may 
appeal the action in writing to the University Judicial Tribunal. The written notice of appeal 
must be submitted within one week (seven calendar days) of the date of the incident. The 
student should refer to the section on Appellate Procedures in the Student Handbook.

OBJECTIVES 

The Master of Science Program in Computer Science is designed to meet the need for 
technical and/or managerial specialists in research, academic, and industry. Two areas of con- 
centration (Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence) are offered. 

DEGREE OFFERED 

Computer Science - Master of Science 

The MSCS program offers the options of Thesis (30 credits), Project (33 credits), or Writ- 
ten Examination (33 credits). Unconditional admission to the program is granted to students 
with a BS degree in computer science from a CSAB accredited program with a minimum GPA 
of 3.0. Specific degree and admissions requirements are detailed in the department Gradu- 
ate Student Handbook and the Graduate School catalog. 

Graduate Record Examination scores for Master of Science Degree in Computer Science, 
although not necessary, will be given consideration in making decisions regarding financial 
assistance. 

It is assumed that all entering students have completed undergraduate courses in pro- 
gramming in a high level language (such as "C", "C++", or Smalltalk), in data structures, 
and in computer architecture, as well as mathematical maturity (for example, Calculus I & 
II, Discrete math or Switching Theory). Students who have not had such courses or their 
equivalent may be required to take undergraduate courses to remedy deficiencies, with no 
credit towards the degree. 

MASTER'S PROGRAM GENERAL DESCRIPTION 

While the research interests of faculty members cover many areas of computer science, 
the department is building its strength in the areas of Software Engineering (especially object- 
oriented approaches) and Artificial Intelligence. We are building an innovative graduate pro- 
gram, combining real world knowledge with the technical excellence of the most advanced 
software technologies. In keeping with our historical mission, the program also provides stu- 
dents with knowledge of organizational theory, management practices, information eco- 
nomics, and societal and policy frameworks. 

Software Engineering: 

"The systematic approach to the development, operation, maintenance, and retirement of 
software" is the definition of software engineering. Software is not only the program code, 
but includes the various documents needed for the development, installation, utilization, and 
maintenance of a system. Engineering refers to the application of a systems approach to the 
production of large software systems. Methodologies for analysis and design are evolving, 
competing, and themselves being automated through the use of CASE (computer aided soft- 
ware engineering) tools. The methods of software engineering seek to produce systems of high 
quality, on time, at the lowest costs possible. Research projects include object oriented method- 
ologies, software production cost modelling, software reliability engineering, and the social 
implications of computer technology. 

79 



Artificial Intelligence: 

Artificial intelligence uses symbolic computation and complex interrelations of variables 
to produce "intelligent" responses to problem situations. The responses are intelligent in the 
sense that unforeseen situations are accommodated and decisions are not hard-coded into 
programs. Problems are frequently "ill-structured", that is, they cannot be stated in the forms 
required by commonly used deterministic and sequential algorithms. Artificial intelligence 
often involves search and inference and frequently supports human decision making. It is 
thus natural to view artificial intelligence software as tackling problems as humans would 
tackle them. Research topics include mobile robots, computer vision, automated reasoning, 
the acquisition and representation of knowledge, and the analysis of decision making in real- 
istic business settings. Artificial intelligence uses a multitude of paradigms, willingly col- 
laborates with other areas of computer science, and pursues real-world applications. 

The Computer Science Department operates the Software Engineering Laboratory (US 
Army/SECOM), the Generic Object Oriented Software Engineering Laboratory (IBM Soft- 
ware Solutions), and other research funded by agencies including the Air Force, the National 
Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the National Security Agency. 

The research interests of faculty members cover many areas of computer science. The 
department's strength is in the areas of Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Dis- 
tributed Systems, and Algorithms. We offer an innovative graduate program, combining com- 
puter science fundamentals with practical knowledge and technical excellence of the most 
advanced technologies. 

The Department offers MS computer science degree with option of a "General Track" 
two specialization tracks: "Artificial Intelligence Track" and "Software Engineering Track". 
Students interested in Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence can choose one of 
these specialization tracks, whereas students interested in other areas may select General 
Track, and design their curriculum in consultation with their advisor to satisfy all graduation 
requirements of MS in CS.

READING EDUCATION 

The reading education program prepares educators to serve as catalysts for learning. Three 
different roles of the Category II reading specialist as designated in the Guidelines for the 
Specialized Preparation of Reading Professionals by the International Reading Association 
(IRA), 1986 are addressed in this program of study. These roles are (1) Diagnostic-Remedial 
Specialist (Role 3), (2) Developmental Reading Study Skills Specialist (Role 4), and (3) 
Reading Consultant/Reading Resource Teacher (Role 5). 

A brief statement of the goals and objectives of the program are to prepare each student 
to gain an in-depth understanding of the developmental nature of the reading process and the 
factors which affect reading achievement; gain an understanding of the interrelatedness of 
reading and language arts from the emergent literacy/reading readiness to content area study; 
apply broad knowledge bases of current research, theory, and best practices in the selection 
and use of various methods and materials; and provide assistance to schools. 

Curriculum (30-36* semester hours) 

Students may select either the licensure program or the master's degree program with or 
without licensure. Generally, the reading degree requires 30 semester hours of graduate level

Architectural Engineering Department 



Dr. Ronald Helms, Chairperson 
448 McNair Hall 

OBJECTIVE 

The objective of the graduate programs in Architectural Engineering is to provide advanced 
professional studies in the areas of Structural Analysis and Design, Facilities Engineering, or 
Environmental Systems Analysis and Design. 

DEPARTMENTAL ADMISSION POLICY 

The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering program is open to students with a 
bachelor's degree in engineering, technology, architecture, or a closely related field from an 
institution of recognized standing. In order to pursue a graduate degree in Architectural Engi- 
neering, an applicant must first be admitted to the Graduate School. The initial step toward 
Graduate School admission is to complete the required application forms and submit them 
to the Gaduate School office. In addition to the application forms, two copies of the students 
undergraduate and/or graduate transcript(s) and two recommendation letters are required. 
The student should also include an essay which describes his/her area of interest and reasons 
for wanting to pursue a graduate degree. 

Processing of applications cannot be guaranteed unless applications are received, with all 
supporting documents, in the Graduate School office at least fifteen days prior to the begin- 
ning of registration for a given semester. Foreign nationals are encouraged to apply early; a 
minimum of one semester in advance of the anticipated enrollment date is recommended. 

The graduate program in Architectural Engineering leads to a Master of Science in Archi- 
tectural Engineering. The Master's program has two paths which are dependent on the appli- 
cants undergraduate academic background and interests. The two paths of study are (1) the 
Thesis Path and (2) the Non-Thesis Path. 

1 . THESIS PATH - For applicants who are full time graduate students, who are admitted 
under " UNCONDITIONAL ADMISSION " . who are pursuing the "Thesis Option", and 
who may be interested in pursuing a Ph.D. 

2. NON-THESIS - For applicants who are admitted as Unconditional or Conditional grad- 
uate students, who are pursuing the "Project Option" or the "Course Option". 

ADMISSION STATUS 

1 . UNCONDITIONAL ADMISSION - An applicant may be given unconditional admis- 
sion to the MS AE program if he/she possesses: 

a. an ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited, four or 
five year bachelors degree in Architectural Engineering with an overall GPA of 3.0 or 
better on a 4.0 scale. 

b. an ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited, four or 
five year bachelors degree in Engineering with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better on a 
4.0 scale. All students with a non-B.S.A.E. degree will be required to take AREN 650 
- Design, Operations & Maintenance of Buildings I. However, those students enrolled 
in the Thesis Option will not receive degree credit for AREN 650. However, the grade 
received in AREN 650 will affect the grade point average of all enrolled students. 



103 



Students must have a sufficient background to complete the MSAE program. Each 
applicants background will be evaluated on a case by case basis. 

It should be noted that a student must maintain a minimum of GPA of 3.0 in their grad- 
uate program to be eligible to receive financial assistance. 

2. CONDITIONAL ADMISSION - Applicants with an overall GPA of 2.65 or better on 
a 4.0 scale (or equivalent) may be granted conditional admission if they do not qualify 
for unconditional admission. The applicant must possess a recognized undergraduate 
Baccalaureate degree in architecture, engineering, technology or a closely related field, 
and the applicant does not have background course deficiencies that exceed twelve (12) 
credit hours. 

Other admission conditions and program requirements may be imposed on a case-by- 
case basis as approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies and/or the Departmental Grad- 
uate committee. All conditional students must satisfy all background deficiencies within 
two terms with an average GPA of 3.0 or better. 

In order to be qualified to sit for the Professional Engineering exam, students with non- 
engineering degrees may elect to complete additional undergraduate engineering courses. 

It should be noted that a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required to be eligible to receive 
financial assistance. 

CHANGE OF STATUS - Conditional admission status will be changed to uncondi- 
tional when the student has satisfied the two conditions below: 

a. All required course deficiencies have been completed with a 3.0 GPA or above and 

b. A minimum of a 3.0 GPA is attained in all A&T courses taken for graduate credit at the 
end of the semester in which the 9 credit hour of graduate course work is completed. 

Failure to move to unconditional admission when first eligible will result in the student's 
being subject to probation policies. 

Conditional admission status is the entry level graduate admission classification. Students 
are not eligible to register for 700-level courses until they have achieved this classification. 
They can register in 700 level courses as a conditional graduate student, provided such 
courses are approved by the academic advisor. 

3. *SPECIAL STUDENT - Students who have more than twelve credits of course defi- 
ciencies, or students who are NOT seeking a Graduate degree, are classified as special stu- 
dents. They may be admitted in order to take courses for self-improvement. 

THESE STUDENTS ARE ADMITTED TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL, NOT TO 
THE DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING AND ARE SUB- 
JECT TO THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL. 

If a student subsequently wishes to pursue a degree program in Architectural Engineering, 
he/she must reapply for admission to the graduate program in the department after com- 
pleting a minimum of 12 credit hours of upper level courses with an average GPA of 3.0 
or higher. The Graduate School and the department reserves the right to refuse to accept cred- 
its toward the MSAE degree program which the candidate earned while being enrolled as 
a special student; in no circumstances may the student apply towards a degree program 
more than six semester hours of graduate credits as a special student. Special students are 
not eligible to receive financial assistance. 



104 



Change of Admission Status 

It is the student's responsibility to apply to the School of Graduate Studies for a change in 
admission status. Students who fail to have their status upgraded run the risk of not receiv- 
ing graduate credit for any completed graduate courses. Such students also run the risk of 
academic probation and dismissal. 

SPECIAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS WITH 
NON-ACCREDITED DEGREES 

In addition to the application material described previously, foreign nationals are required 
to provide the following: 

1 . All foreign applicants, except those from English-speaking countries, must provide proof 
of English language proficiency by obtaining a score of 550 or better on the test of Eng- 
lish as a foreign language (TOEFL). While this test does not effect the students admis- 
sion, failure to pass it may necessitate taking remedial English courses designed to improve 
the students ability to communicate in the English language. 

2. All foreign students should show financial certification for the required amount of money 
from the applicant's sponsor and the appropriate bank before an 1-20 can be issued. 

3. All foreign nationals currently residing in the USA are required to complete a transfer 
clearance form and send it to the Office of International and Minority Affairs, in addition 
to the financial certification form. 

4. The general GRE Test must be taken. 

Specific information regarding visa and immigration requirements can be obtained from 
the International and Minority students Affairs Office, North Carolina A&T State Univer- 
sity, Murphy Hall, room 22 1 , Greensboro, NC, 274 1 1 . All application forms can be obtained

126 



MASTER OF SCIENCE 

General Program Requirements: 

The admission of students to the graduate degree program in the Department of Electri- 
cal Engineering is based upon a baccalaureate degree in Electrical Engineering from an 
accredited institution. A grade point average of 3.0 out of 4.0 is required for unconditional 
admission to the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program. Provisional admission 
may be granted to a candidate who possesses an accredited undergraduate degree in engi- 
neering or in a closely related discipline with an overall grade point of at least 2.8 out of 4.0, 
and has no background deficiencies requiring more than twelve semester hours at the under- 
graduate level. Graduate Record Examination scores for Master of Science Degree in Elec- 
trical Engineering are required for international applicants and are also used in making 
decisions regarding financial assistance. 

Degree Requirements: 

Three options are offered in the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program. A 
minimum of 30 semester hours, including 6 hours of thesis are required for the "thesis option," 
a minimum of 33 hours, including 3 hours of special projects, are required for the "project 
option," and a minimum of 33 hours of coursework are required for the All-course work 
option. In order to graduate, students are required to maintain a grade point average of 3.0 in 
all graduate (600 and 700) level course work. A minimum of 50% of these courses must be 
at the 700 level. 

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY 

General Program Requirement: 

Satisfying the minimum requirements described below does not guarantee admission. 
Denial of admission does not necessarily imply a negative evaluation of an applicant's qual- 
ifications. Limited space and other facilities often force limits on the number of students in 
certain specialties. For details concerning admission requirements, see "Admission and Other 
Information" elsewhere in this catalogue. 

Degree Requirements: 

1 . Credit-Hour Requirements: A minimum of 24 graduate-level course credits, and at 
least 12 dissertation research credits beyond the master's degree are required. It is expected 
that a significant number of these credits will be in 700-level courses. The student is also 
expected to complete sufficient course credits outside this department to acquire additional 
graduate-level breadth and depth. At least 9 of the 24 course credits are required credits 
in an area outside electrical engineering to satisfy a graduate area concentration. 

2. Dissertation Research: There is no limit to the maximum number of dissertation, 
research, or special topics credits for Ph.D. students, but no more than 12 dissertation 
credits will be counted toward the 36 credit requirement described above. These credits 
alone do not constitute sufficient work at the dissertation/research level. 

3 . Advisory Committee: Each student must form his or her advisory committee before or dur- 
ing the semester in which fifteen or more credits are completed toward the degree sought. 

4. Membership: All members of the student's advisory committee must be regular faculty 
members of the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University College of 
Engineering. They must also be eligible to work with graduate students in this College. 
Others may serve in an ex-officio capacity, and must be identified as such on the appoint- 
ment form. A vita for ex-officio members must be attached to the appointment form. A 



127 



student may submit a written request to change the membership of his or her advisory 
committee at any time. The request is subject to the approval of the committee chair, the 
department Graduate Coordinator, and the School of Graduate Studies. 

The advisory committee for a Ph.D. student consists of a chairperson, two other mem- 
bers from the Department of Electrical Engineering, and where appropriate, a represen- 
tative from the selected concentration area outside the department. The chairman must 
be selected from the Faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering in the area of 
emphasis chosen by the student. A fifth member, the School of Graduate Studies repre- 
sentative, will be appointed by the School of Graduate Studies when the Plan of Work is 
approved. The School of Graduate Studies representative attends the preliminary and 
final oral examinations and must sign the reports of those examinations, but does not oth- 
erwise participate in directing the student's technical work. Ph.D. committees must con- 
tain five members. 

5 . The Plan of Work: Each graduate student must submit a Plan of Work (PW) to the Office 
of the Electrical Engineering Graduate Coordinator during the term in which the student 
will complete 15 or more credits toward the degree sought. If the 15 credits are expected 
to be completed at the end of a regular semester, the Plan of Work must be submitted one 
full week before the beginning of preregistration for the following semester. If the 1 5 
credits will be completed at the end of a summer session, the Plan of Work must be sub- 
mitted before registration day for the following semester. The Plan of Work shows com- 
mittee chairperson, other committee members, and a sequential list of courses approved 
by that student's advisor. Each member's signature of the Plan of Work denotes their 
approval for the plan of study. Upon approval by the Graduate School, this Plan becomes 
the students official guide to completing their program, and the listed individuals form 
the official Ph.D. Advisory Committee. 

6. Submission of Theses and Dissertations: Upon passing the Ph.D. final oral examina- 
tion, each Ph.D. student must have the thesis or dissertation approved by each member 
of the student's advisory committee. The thesis or dissertation must be submitted to the 
School of Graduate Studies by the deadline given in the academic calendar, and must 
conform to the Guide For Preparation of Thesis and Dissertations, a copy of which may 
be obtained from the Electrical Engineering Graduate Office. Submission of Thesis and 
Dissertations to the School of Graduate Studies is by appointment only. Telephone num- 
bers to be used for scheduling, and the location for turning in the thesis or dissertation, 
will be made available by the School of Graduate Studies.

See "Regulations for the Doctor of Philosophy Degree" elsewhere in this catalogue for 
information related to residence requirements, qualifying examination, preliminary exami- 
nation, comprehensive examination, final oral examination, admission to candidacy, and time 
limit. Students should also consult the departmental handbook for more details.

The School of Graduate Studies offers a program of study leading to the Master of Science 
in Engineering that involves all engineering areas. Students may obtain the M.S.E. degree with 
thesis, project, or course work options. Because the departments of Architectural Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering have depart- 
mental Master of Science programs, it is likely that the M.S.E. will be of interest to ( 1 ) grad- 
uates of our chemical engineering, civil engineering or agricultural engineering curricula 
whose host departments do not have their own graduate programs, (2) students who wish to 
study subject matter that might better be accommodated through the expertise and resources 
of more than one department, or (3) students whose interests may otherwise fall outside other 
engineering graduate programs. For admission to the program, student must be recommended 
by one of the engineering programs.

DEGREE OFFERED 

Engineering - Master of Science 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

Regular admission to the Master of Science in Engineering program is granted to gradu- 
ates of ABET/EAC accredited engineering schools and who have attained a minimum grade 
point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in their overall undergraduate program of study. 

A provisional category of admission may also be invoked on a case-by-case basis. Persons 
may be admitted provisionally to the M.S.E. program if any of the following conditions apply: 

1 . The undergraduate degree is not from an ABET accredited program in engineering. 

2. The undergraduate degree is not in engineering but is in a closely related curriculum 
with a substantial engineering content. In this case, any deficiencies revealed in the 
undergraduate transcript may be removed by the inclusion of no more than 12 semes- 
ter credit hours of appropriate undergraduate course content not for graduate credit. 

3. The grade point average is below 3.0, but there is other substantial evidence support- 
ing the applicants ability to complete the degree. 

Any provisionally admitted student must earn a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on 
graduate work and all non-credit undergraduate courses if any were required as a condition 
of admission. In addition to these provisions, other conditions may be imposed by the spon- 
soring department on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by the Graduate School. 

Students who hold an undergraduate degree but suffer from course deficiencies exceed- 
ing 12 semester credits can be considered for special student status — undergraduate. Per- 
sons with massive undergraduate engineering and related deficiencies even though they hold 
an undergraduate degree are asked to apply as transfer students to the appropriate under- 
graduate engineering curriculum. 

Upon admission to graduate study, the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies and the 
MSE program coordinator assigns an academic advisor from the sponsoring department. The 
course of study planned with the approval of the academic advisor is designed to be consis- 
tent with the student's engineering interests. 

Graduate Record Examination scores for the Master of Science Degree in Engineering, 
although not necessary, will be given consideration in making decisions regarding financial 
assistance. 

Regulations that are option dependent follow: 

Course Work 

This option requires 33 credits of course work approved by the advisor and MSE pro- 
gram coordinator. No formal advisory committee is needed. Students wishing to receive 
advanced training without an interest in solving a publishable problem or in authoring a tech- 
nical report will be attracted to this option. A written comprehensive examination of six hours 
duration arranged by the advisor is a requirement. The examination follows the general course 
material of the student set by 3 or more examiners out of which one may be the advisor. The 
student must satisfy the majority of examiners to pass the comprehensive examination. The 
examination is given during the student's final semester. 



136 



Project 

This option requires 30 credits of course work and 3 credits of of project work (GEEN 
766-MSE Project) — see Courses (approved by the advisor). The advisor and student select 
a suitable project of mutual interest to both. No formal advisory committee is required for 
this option. A public defense of the project is required. 

The project option may interest those who wish to investigate a specific problem and write 
a technical report. Project option students follow the same rules for a final comprehensive 
examination as do course work option students. 

Thesis 

This option requires 24 hours of courses and 6 hours of thesis specifically designed for 
students who wish to investigate a problem in depth and product original publishable find- 
ings under the academic advisor's direction. 

The thesis option is a good preparation for students planning to enter Ph.D. programs. For 
that reason, and because the thesis can be very time consuming, it is a very demanding option. 
In this option, as in others, the advisor and student plan the program of study. Unlike the oth- 
ers, this option requires a formal committee chaired by the advisor. A minimum of 2 addi- 
tional faculty members are selected by the advisor to serve. This committee must formally 
judge the thesis content and quality, and the thesis defense. In addition, the Graduate Dean 
requires that the thesis follow a specific format established by the School of Graduate Studies. 

ACCREDITATION 

The Master of Science in Engineering degree program is supported by the engineering 
administration and faculty of the undergraduate departments. All undergraduate engineering 
degree programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accred- 
itation Board for Engineering and Technology. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

The holder of the Master of Science in. Engineering degree is typically employed in an engi- 
neering or management position within government and industry. The M.S.E. degree, in parti- 
cular the thesis option, is a good background for persons wishing to complete a Ph.D. program. 

SUGGESTED CURRICULUM GUIDE 

The curriculum is determined by the student and his/her advisor according to interest and 
degree requirements. The courses follow that address only Chemical and Civil Engineering 
because topics and courses in other program areas are already listed under Architectural, 
Electrical, Industrial, and Mechanical Engineering. Those courses may also be part of an 
M.S.E. program.

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM 

The objectives of graduate study in Mechanical Engineering is to provide advanced level 
study in mechanical engineering in four distinct areas of specialization. The Master of Sci- 
ence in Mechanical Engineering is designed to prepare the graduate for Ph.D. level studies 
or for advanced mechanical engineering practice in industrial consulting, or government ser- 
vice. The Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering provides both advanced instruction and 
independent research opportunities to students. The Ph.D. degree is the highest academic 
degree offered, and graduates typically are employed in research environments in govern- 
ment laboratories and industries, and as university faculty. 

DEGREES OFFERED 

Mechanical Engineering - Master of Science (MSME) 
Mechanical Engineering - Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) 

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 

Program Description 

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering is graduate-level program comprised 
of advanced classroom and independent study courses in mechanics and materials, energy and 
thermal/fluid systems, design and manufacturing, and aerospace. 

Admission to the MSME Program 

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program is open to students with a 
Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field from an institution 
of recognized standing. In order to pursue a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, an 
applicant must first be admitted to the School of Graduate Studies. The initial step toward grad- 
uate admission is to complete the required application forms and submit them to the School 
of Graduate Studies Office. In addition to the application forms, two copies of the student's 
undergraduate and/or graduate transcript(s) and two recommendation letters are required. 
Processing of applications cannot be guaranteed unless they are received, with all support- 
ing documents and application fee payment, in the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants 
should note all application deadline dates. Submission of application materials after the 



145 



deadline for applications will delay consideration by one or more academic semesters. For- 
eign Nationals are encouraged to apply at least two months in advance of each admission 
deadline date. Foreign Nationals must also file a Financial Certification Form and Certifica- 
tion of Sources of Funds and Amounts. Specific information regarding visa and immigration 
requirements can be obtained from the Office of International and Minority Student Affairs, 
North Carolina A&T State University, Murphy Hall, Room 221, Greensboro, NC 2741 1. 
Application packages may be obtained from the School of Graduate Studies Office, 
Room 122, Gibbs Hall, North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC 2741 1. 

Applicants may be admitted to the MSME Program under three categories: Unconditional 
Admission, Conditional Admission, or Special Student (Undergraduate) Admission. Details 
follow: 

1 . Unconditional Admission: An applicant may be given unconditional admission to the 
MSME Program if he/she possesses a MSME, degree from an ABET (Accreditation 
Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited institution, with an overall GPA of 3.0 
or better on a 4.0 scale. 

Students admitted on an unconditional basis are also expected to have completed "key 
courses" below as part of their prior undergraduate program. 

Undergraduate Courses Required 

Calculus (minimum of 8 semester hours) Statics 

Differential Equations Dynamics 

Applied Engineering Mathematics Strength of Materials 

Physics (minimum of 6 semester hours) Materials Science 

Chemistry Thermodynamics 

Fortran Programming Fluid Mechanics 

Introductory Numerical Methods Machine Design or Equivalent 

Additional undergraduate course requirements for Specialization in Mechanics and Mate- 
rials: three credits of Advanced Materials 

Additional undergraduate course required for Specialization in Energy and Thermal/Sci- 
ences: three credits of Heat Transfer 

Additional undergraduate courses required for Specialization in Design and Manufac- 
turing: three credits of Kinematics and three credits of Manufacturing Processes 

2. Provisional Admission: Applicants may be granted conditional admission if they do not 
qualify for unconditional admission due to one or more of the following reasons: 

a. Applicant has a baccalaureate mechanical engineering degree from a non-ABET 
accredited program. Undergraduate engineering degrees from foreign universities fall 
into this category. 

b. Applicant has a baccalaureate degree in engineering but is deficient in key background 
courses listed in the previous section. These deficiencies must not exceed 12 credit hours. 

c. Applicant has an undergraduate degree which is not in engineering but is in a closely 
related curriculum with a substantial engineering science content. Background defi- 
ciencies should not exceed 12 credit hours. 

d. Applicant's undergraduate grade point average is below that required for uncondi- 
tional admission but there is also academic evidence that the student will successfully 
complete the degree. 



146 



Provisional admission status will be changed to unconditional when the student has sat- 
isfied the two conditions below: 

a. All required course deficiencies have been completed with a 3.0 GPA or above and 

b. A minimum of a 3.0 GPA is attained on A&T courses taken for graduate credit at the 
end of the semester in which the 9th semester credit is completed. 

Failure to move to unconditional admission when first eligible will result in the stu- 
dent's being subject to probation policies. Other admission conditions and program 
requirements may be imposed on a case-by-case basis as approved by the Dean of the 
School of Graduate Studies. 

Provisional admission status is the minimum level of graduate admission classification. 
In this classification, students are eligible to register for 700-level courses, provided such 
courses are approved by the academic advisor. 

3. Special Student (Undergraduate): Special student admission implies that the student does 
not meet the above requirements for graduate admission in engineering. Students who hold 
an undergraduate degree but have course work deficiencies exceeding 12 credits may fall 
in the Special Student category. This category is reserved for candidates who, in spite of 
deficiencies in excess of 12 credits, show high potential, and will be able to remove these 
deficiencies in one calendar year of full-time study. 

Special Student (Undergraduate) status will be changed to provisional admission status 
when the student: 

a. reduces the number of deficiencies to 12 credits or less, 

b. achieves a GPA of 3.0 or more in courses completed to remove deficiencies, and 

c. obtains an average grade of 3.0 or more in graduate courses completed. 

Persons admitted as special students are limited to no more than six 600 level graduate 
credits while in this category — See Transfer of Credit below. Students classified under 
the Special Student (Undergraduate) category are subject to the undergraduate academic 
policies in effect at the time of admission. 

Change of Admission Status 

It is the student's responsibility to apply to the School of Graduate Studies for a change 
in admission status. Students who fail to have their status upgraded run the risk of not receiv- 
ing graduate credit for any completed graduate courses. Such students also run the risk of 
academic probation and dismissal. 

Program Options 

1. Coursework Option 

This option consists of thirty-three (33) semester hours of coursework. Successful com- 
pletion of the comprehensive examination is a degree requirement. Approval must be 
obtained from the Graduate Program Coordinator to elect the coursework option. A 
Coursework Option student must also take at least five courses from her/his special- 
ization area or in a related area as specified by the academic advisor. A candidate who 
chooses the coursework option must select a permanent advisor who will direct the course 
of study and who will plan the Final Comprehensive Examination. The advisor may also 
be part of the group of examiners who conduct the Final Comprehensive Examination. 
A candidate who selects this option does not have a formal advising committee. See 
pages 150 and 151 for a list of courses by specialization. 



147 



Comprehensive Examination (Coursework Option) 

Candidates who elect the coursework option must sit for a written comprehensive exam- 
ination of six (6) hours duration, prepared as three independent two-hour examinations. 
A student must have completed at least twenty-one (2 1 ) hours of coursework to be eli- 
gible to take the comprehensive examination. 

One week each semester, at least forty-five (45) days prior to the end of the semester, 
will be designated as Comprehensive Examination Week. All students wishing to take the 
examination must do so during this period. 

Applications to take the examination must be submitted by the academic advisor to the 
Graduate Program Coordinator at least thirty (30) days prior to the schedule beginning 
date of the examination. The student must initiate this process by contacting his/her advi- 
sor with an examination request. 

The application should contain a description of the subject areas to be covered by the 
exam. In consultation with the academic advisor, the Graduate Coordinator assigns an 
appropriate group of examiners as well as a test time and date. The Graduate Program 
Coordinator will organize the examination to arrange for as much "common" testing as 
possible based on material relating to the student's coursework. 

The candidate must achieve a satisfactory score in at least two (2) sessions of the exam- 
ination. A candidate who fails to achieve a satisfactory score at the first attempt may sit 
again in the next regularly scheduled Comprehensive Examination Week, generally in 
the following semester. A Candidate who fails a second time must petition the Dean of 
the School of Graduate Studies for permission to sit again. An unfavorable decision will 
result in dismissal from the program. A third failure will always result in dismissal from 
the program. 

2. Project and Thesis Options 

The Project Option consists of thirty (30) semester hours of coursework and three (3) 
hours of special project. It is intended for students with an interest in research or inde- 
pendent study but who do not wish to do a full Master's thesis. Project Option students 
must take three hours of MEEN-766 Graduate Projects. An oral examination project 
defense/examination is required. 

The Thesis Option consists of twenty-four (24) semester hours of course work and six 
(6) hours of thesis. Thesis Option students must take six hours of MEEN-777 Thesis. An 
original research topic must be chosen in conjunction with the student's advisor 
culminating in the preparation of a scholarly thesis. An oral thesis defense/examina- 
tion is required. This option is intended for students with strong research interests who 
may desire to pursue further graduate studies towards a Ph.D. degree. 

THE DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 

Program Description 

The Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering provides both doctoral-level instruction and 
independent research opportunities for students. The Ph.D. degree is the highest academic 
degree offered, and graduates typically are employed in research environments in govern- 
ment laboratories and industries, and as University faculty. 

The Ph.D. degree program is highly individualistic in nature, and the student is expected 
to make a significant contribution to the reservoir of human knowledge by investigating a 
significant topic within the domain of mechanical engineering. A successful dissertation is 
the expected outcome of the degree program. The Ph.D. student must rely heavily on the 



148 



guidance of the academic advisor and on the academic committee in formulating a plan of 
work, in setting and meeting the degree goals, and in selecting a dissertation problem. The 
academic advisor serves to guide the student during the dissertation study phase of the program. 

For details concerning admission requirements, see "Admission and Other Information" 
: elsewhere in this catalog. 

Ph.D. Program Policies and Requirements 

The doctorate symbolizes the ability of the recipient to undertake original research and 
scholarly work of the highest levels without supervision. The degree is therefore not granted 
simply upon completion of a stated amount of course work but rather upon demonstration by 
the student of a comprehensive knowledge and high attainment in scholarship in a special- 
i ized field of study. As a guide however, the student is expected generally to have completed 
: at least twenty-four course credits beyond the master's degree and a minimum of twelve dis- 
sertation credits. The student must demonstrate both the attainment of scholarship and inde- 
pendent study in a specialized field of study by writing a dissertation reporting the results of 
an original investigation. The student must pass a series of comprehensive examinations in 
the field of specialization and related areas of knowledge and defend successfully the qual- 
ity, methodology, findings, and significance of the dissertation. . 

Advisory Committee and Plan of Graduate Work 

An advisory committee of at least four graduate faculty members, one of whom will be 
designated as chair, will be appointed by the Dean of Graduate School upon the recommen- 
dation of the Chairperson of the department. The committee, which must include at least one 
I representative of the minor field, will, with the student, prepare a Plan of Graduate Study 
i which must be approved by the department and the School of Graduate Studies. In addition 
to the course work to be undertaken, the subject of the student's dissertation must appear on 
the plan; and any subsequent changes in committee or subject or in the overall plan must be 
submitted for approval as with the original plan. 

The program of study must be unified, and all constituent parts must contribute to an orga- 
nized program of study and research. Courses must be selected from groups embracing one 
principal subject of concentration, the major, and from a cognate field, the minor. Normally, 
a student will select the minor work from a single discipline or field which, in the judgment 
of the advisory committee finds that the needs of the student will be best served by work in 
an interdisciplinary minor, it has the alternative of developing a special program in lieu of the 
usual minor. 

CO-MAJOR 

There is currently an approved doctoral level program of study, on campus, only in elec- 
trical engineering. Students may currently co-major through it or through the interinstitu- 
tional Ph.D. program. This would require the approval of both departments in the College of 
i Engineering or through both university campuses, and approval of the students combined 
advisory committee. Co-majors must meet all requirements for majors in both departments. 
Only one degree is awarded and the co-major is noted on transcript. A co-major must involve 
degree programs and similar requirements. Co-majors are not permitted between Doctorate- 
level and lower level programs.

OTHER INFORMATION 

See "Regulations for the Doctor of Philosophy Degree" elsewhere in this catalogue for 
information related to residence requirements, qualifying examination, preliminary exami- 
nation, comprehensive examination, final oral examination, admission to candidacy, and time 
limit. Students should also consult the department handbook for more details. 

THE DISSERTATION 

The doctoral dissertation presents the results if the student's original investigation in the 
field of major interest. It must be a contribution to knowledge, be adequately supported by 
data and be written in a manner consistent with the highest standards of scholarship. Publi- 
cation is expected. 

The dissertation will be reviewed by all members of the advisory committee and must 
receive their approval prior to submission to the School of Graduate Studies. Three copies of 
the document signed by all members of the student's advisory committee must be submitted 
to the School of Graduate Studies by a specified deadline in the semester or summer session 
in which the degree is to be conferred. Prior to final approval, the dissertation will be reviewed 
by the School of Graduate Studies to ensure that the format conforms to its specifications. 

The University has a requirement that all doctoral dissertations be microfilmed by the 
University Microfilms International, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, which includes publication of 
the abstract in Dissertation Abstracts International. The student is required to pay for the 
microfilming service.

OBJECTIVES 

The objectives of the English Department are to provide in-depth training in English-Edu- 
cation, English, American, and African- American literature, folklore and language. 

DEGREES OFFERED 

English and African- American Literature - Master of Arts 
English Education - Master of Science 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO THE M.A. PROGRAM IN ENGLISH 
AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN LITERATURE AND THE M.S. PROGRAM IN 

ENGLISH EDUCATION 

All applicants to the M.A. program must have earned a bachelor's degree from a four- 
year college. Applicants must also have completed a minimum of twenty-four (24) under- 
graduate hours in English. The hours must include at least three semester hours of Shakespeare, 
three of American literature, three of English literature, three of world literature or contem- 
porary literature, three of advanced grammar, and three of advanced composition. 

A student who fails to meet these qualifications will be expected to satisfy the requirements 
by enrolling in undergraduate courses before beginning graduate studies in English. 



159 



Scores for the verbal sections of the GRE general test and for the GRE Literature and 
English test must be submitted for consideration as a part of the admission process. 

Application forms may be obtained from the office of the Graduate School and must be 
completed and returned to the Graduate Office. Two (2) official transcripts of previous under- 
graduate or graduate records and three (3) letters of recommendation must be forwarded to 
the Graduate Office before action can be taken on the application. An applicant may be admit- 
ted to the program unconditionally, provisionally, or as a special student. 

Unconditional Admission. To qualify for unconditional admission to the programs, an 
applicant must have earned an overall average of 3.00 on a four-point system (or 2.00 on a 
three-point system) in undergraduate studies. 

Provisional Admission. An applicant may be admitted to graduate studies on a provisional 
basis if ( 1 ) the record of undergraduate preparation reveals deficiencies that can be removed 
near the beginning of graduate study or (2) lacking the required grade point average for uncon- 
ditional admission, the applicant may become eligible by successfully completing the first 
nine (9) hours of course work with a 3.00 or better average. Students admitted provisionally 
may also be required to pass examinations to demonstrate their knowledge in certain areas 
or to take special undergraduate courses to improve their background. A minimum grade of 
2.6 in undergraduate work is required for provisional admission. 

Special Students. Students not seeking the M.A. or M.S. degree may be admitted in order 
to take courses for self-improvement or for renewal of teaching certificates. If the student 
subsequently wishes to purse the M.A. or M.S. program, he or she must request an evalua- 
tion of the work. Under no circumstances may the student apply toward a degree program 
more than twelve (12) hours earned as a special student. 

M.A. AND M.S. DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

Except for the foreign language requirement and the professional education courses, the 
program requirements are the same for the M.S. in English-Education as they are for the 
M.A. in English and African- American Literature. A reading knowledge of French, German, 
or Spanish is required for the M.A. degree. 

Total Hours Required. The M.A. and M.S. programs consist of two distinct but parallel 
elements. The student may elect to take twenty-seven (27) hours of course work and write a 
thesis for three (3) hours credit in order to satisfy the thirty-hour minimum requirement. The 
student may also elect not to write a thesis and take an additional three (3) hours of course 
work in order to satisfy the thirty-hour minimum requirement. Three courses are required: 
English 754 - History and Structure of the English Language, English 753 - Literary Research 
and Bibliography, and English 700 - Literary Analysis and Criticism. The student must take 
twelve (12) hours in African- American Literature. 

Approximately fifty percent of the courses offered each semester will be open only to 
graduate students. These courses are on the 700 level. Students enrolled in both programs 
must complete fifteen (15) hours of course work at the 700 level. Students in the M.S. pro- 
gram may apply 700 level professional education courses toward meeting this requirement. 
All 600 level courses are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. 

Grades Required. Students in the programs must maintain a 3.00 average in order to sat- 
isfy the grade requirements of the program. If a student receives a C or lower in more than 
two (2) courses, he or she will be dropped from the program. 

Amount of Credit Accepted for Transfer. The Graduate School will accept six (6) semester 
hours of transfer credit from another institution for those students enrolled in degree programs. 



160 



Other Requirements (Comprehensive and Thesis Examinations). For the M.A. and M.S. 
degrees, students must pass a three (3) hour written comprehensive examination adminis- 
tered by the English Department. The comprehensive examination will cover only material 
to which the student has been exposed in course work at A&T. The comprehensive may be 
j taken twice. An additional comprehensive examination in education is required of persons pur- 
suing the M.S. degree. Those students who elect to write a thesis must meet the deadlines pro- 
jected by the Graduate School in addition to standing a one-hour oral examination which 
constitutes a defense of the thesis. The defense may be attempted twice. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

Both the M.A. and M.S. degrees prepare students to pursue graduate study for the doc- 
i torate in English and related fields. The M.S. prepares one to teach on the secondary and col- 
i lege levels. The M.A. degree is designed primarily to prepare one for college teaching and 
for admission to doctoral programs.

GENERAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to the M.S. in Physics degree program in the Department of Physics is based 
upon the general admission requirements of the University. In addition, regular admission to 
the M.S. in Physics degree program requires the undergraduate degree in physics or its equiv- 
alent. Regular admission also requires that an applicant's background reflect maturity in 
physics from junior and senior level undergraduate courses in classical mechanics, electro- 
magnetism, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, and quantum physics. Applicants 
may be admitted to graduate studies unconditionally, provisionally, or as special students. 
Provisional admission may be granted to those whose training is in other disciplines related 
to physics. 

DEPARTMENT REQUIREMENTS 

The M.S. in Physics degree program offers three options: the thesis option, the course 
work option and the project option. The thesis option requires a minimum of 30 semester 
hours which includes 6 semester hours of thesis. The course work option requires a mini- 
mum of 33 semester hours plus a comprehensive examination. The project option requires a 
minimum of 30 semester hours plus 3 semester hours of special project. At least fifty percent 
of the courses counted towards the M.S. in Physics degree must be numbered 700 and above. 
In addition, the Professional Physics track requires a minimum of 24 semester hours of physics 
courses and the Applied Physics track requires a minimum of 1 8 semester hours of physics 
courses. The minimum physics course requirements include a core of competency courses

Department of Social Work 



Dr. Sarah V. Kirk, (NC A&T SU), Program Director 
Dr. Thomas Scullion, (UNCG), Associate Director 

The Joint Master of Social Work program represents the efforts of faculty and adminis- 
trators at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T SU) and The 
University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). It is a collaborative program that has 
developed from a long planning process involving the chief academic officers, deans, and 
department chairs and faculty in forging intra-university agreements concerning administra- 
tion and operation of the program. 

The JMSW curriculum has been designed by the joint faculty from our institutions to pro- 
vide students with advanced generalist social work education, which is based on contem- 
porary, state-of-the-art theory and practice methods. Courses reflect the theme of providing 
effective services to families in urban and rural North Carolina communities. The curriculum 
is organized by foundation, area of practice, advanced generalist integrative seminars, and field 
instruction. 

Program goals and objectives are: 

Goal 1 . to prepare students for entry into advanced generalist social work practice based 

on social work values and ethics; 

Objective 1 . to make available to the central and western regions of North Carolina an 
accredited advanced generalist graduate program in social work which meets 
the identified needs (as delineated in the Feasibility Study) of both traditional 
and employed students; 

Goal 2. to prepare students to develop competency working with culturally diverse 

populations; 

Objective 2. to provide the opportunity to learn from a culturally diverse faculty. The pro- 
gram will integrate the varied viewpoints and traditions of faculty from a his- 
torically black university and a predominantly white institution while serving 
populations including Asians, Hispanics, Native Americans, and African Amer- 
icans, as well as urban and rural poor; 

Goal 3 . to prepare students to observe that the pursuit of social justice requires an under- 

standing of political, economic and interpersonal factors contributing to social 
policies and practice; 

Objective 3. to impact the administration, delivery and evaluation of human services to ame- 
liorate the effects discrimination, and economic deprivation have on populations 
at risk; 

Goal 4. to prepare advanced generalists, using the problem-solving approach, to pro- 

mote empowerment, community building and self-sufficiency; 

Objective 4. through integration of course work and field internships in diverse communi- 
ties, students learn to apply multi-dimensional assessment and intervention 
strategies to match clients and resources to maximize social functioning.

STUDENT LEARNING GOALS 

The proposed Joint Master of Social Work program seeks to: 

1. develop and enhance the state of social work knowledge, practice skills, and services 
to promote both the well-being of people and social and economic justice; 

2. through the Advanced Generalist model students will develop specialized knowledge 
and skills to better enhance the social functioning of people, social and economic jus- 
tice, cultural diversity and to change systems when they create problems endemic to 
the quality of life for all; 

3. prepare students to work in direct and indirect service and leadership capacities to pre- 
vent and solve social problems; and, 

4. contribute to the development of knowledge which is relevant and sensitive to the needs 
and concerns of central and western North Carolina (taken from JMSW Mission State- 
ment and Overview). 

Specific learning objectives are for students to: 

1 . advance their knowledge of theory, research, and social work intervention and inte- 
grate that knowledge with practice situations through field instruction in appropriate 
agency settings; 

2. develop specialized knowledge in subject areas related to their individual career goals; 

3. identify and assess complex situations in which the relationships among people and 
social institutions need to be initiated, enhanced, restored, protected, or terminated; 

4. enhance the problem-solving, coping, and developmental capacities of individuals, 
families, groups, organizations, and communities; 

5. demonstrate advanced knowledge and direct and indirect practice skills in a selected 
area of practice; 

6. actively participate in creating new, modified, or improved services, resources, and 
opportunity systems that are more equitable, just, and responsive to consumers of ser- 
vices and work with others to eliminate those systems that are unjust; 

7. evaluate the extent to which the objectives of intervention plans are achieved; 

8. continually assess one's own professional growth and development through evalua- 
tion of practice behaviors and skills; 

9. contribute to the improvement of service delivery by generating new knowledge 
through research and by upholding the standards and ethics of the profession; 

10. provide effective supervision to beginning practitioners in the fields of human ser- 
vices and social work; 

1 1 . provide leadership in formulating, implementing, and evaluating social interventions 
which improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities; 

12. identify the value commitments and ideological assumptions in all social problem 
and policy analysis and their implications for social work practice; and 

1 3. demonstrate the ability to communicate through professional writing, and formal pre- 
sentations. 



229 



CURRICULUM PLAN 

The curriculum design of the Joint Master of Social Work program is organized to pro- 
vide students with a theoretical and applied education in social work to enhance and pro- 
mote advanced generalist social work education. The two year program is organized to insure 
that all students, as advanced social work practitioners, will not only be prepared to inde- 
pendently engage in social work practice with individuals, families, small groups, organiza- 
tions, and communities in their chosen area of practice, but to formally supervise, serve as 
managers, advanced researchers and social planners. 

During the first year of study, students complete thirty hours of study in the professional 
foundation courses. In the second semester of the first year, students will commence their 
field instruction program along with an integrative field seminar program. 

During the second year, students will take required courses related to their chosen area of 
practice: Families Across the Life Span, Health Care, or Mental Health. They will also com- 
plete two semesters of field instruction and a capstone project which demonstrates integration 
of knowledge and skill and the ability to evaluate social work practice. At the time of gradua- 
tion the student will have experienced a five course concentration comprised of two field of 
practice courses, field instruction placement in the area, a directed elective supporting the con- 
centration, and a capstone integrating seminar which is the culminating academic exercise. 

FOUNDATION YEAR 

During the first year, students complete Human Behavior and Social Functioning I and II 
and Social Work Practice and Human Diversity. In these courses students will develop skills 
in assessing human behavior and in identifying resources and obstacles which interact to 
affect individuals as they seek life goals. Knowledge of the relationships among biological, 
social, psychological, and cultural systems is integrated throughout these two courses. Stu- 
dents examine how diversity in ethnic background, race, class, sexual orientation, disability, 
age, geographic location, and culture may influence both the definition and completion of life- 
tasks and social work intervention. Social Work Practice and Human Diversity, which is taken 
in the spring semester of the first year, expands the base of the first course by further exam- 
ination of the cultural strengths and resources that are available to various cultural and socially 
diverse groups who have in the past been devalued and stigmatized into a subordinate status 
in American society. Students utilize the knowledge acquired in these courses as they begin 
to develop and use competent intervention and interpersonal skills in practice methods, and 
social policy in preparation for the more complex advanced generalist practice. Students will 
also take Field Instruction and Seminar I. 

ADVANCED PRACTICE YEAR 

The second year curriculum enables students to concentrate in one of three areas of prac- 
tice: Social Work with Families Across the Life Span, Social Work in Health Care, or Social 
Work in Mental Health. In addition to two required courses in each area of practice, they will 
also take courses in social work management research. Students will complete a two semes- 
ter advanced field practicum and will also develop a capstone research project as part of an 
advanced generalist integrative seminar.

ADMISSIONS 

A Joint Admissions Committee has been established for this Program. It is comprised of 
two faculty members from UNCG and two faculty members from NC A&T State University. 
These four committee members will review applications, and recommend applicants for 
admission. 

Specific admission criteria has been established for this program. The following four cri- 
teria will have to be met by applicants to make them eligible for an admission review: 

1 . completion of a baccalaureate degree, with competitive grades, from an accredited col- 
lege or university in the United States or its equivalent in another country; 

2. a "B" average or better in the undergraduate major; 

3. an overall minimum GPA of 2.5 and an acceptable score on the GRE; 

4. applicants must show evidence of a liberal arts foundation to include the following 
minimum 30 credit hours: 

1 8 Social and Behavioral Sciences* 

6 Humanities 

3 Human Biology 

_3 Statistics 

30 Hours 

* (Political Science, Psychology, Anthropology, Economics, Ethnic/Global Studies, History, and Sociology). 

Intellectual and personal qualifications considered essential to the successful practice of 
social work, such as sensitivity and responsiveness in relationships, concern for the need of 
others, adaptability, good judgment, creativity, integrity, and skill in oral and written com- 
munication. This determination shall be based on a review of the applicant's references and 
written personal statement. 

Documentation validating that applicants' meet the above criteria will be required in the 
admission packet. Members of the Joint Admissions Committee and staff at the two gradu- 
ate schools will verify that acceptable validation of these five criteria have been included in 
applicants' admission materials. 

The Joint Admissions Committee has established five areas that will be rated to deter- 
mine admission decisions; 

1. Acceptable GRE scores; 

2. GPA averaged from all undergraduate and graduate degrees; 

3. three letters of recommendation; 

4. relevant paid and/or volunteer experience (including internships in social work); and, 

5. a personal statement indicating why applicant is seeking admission, what applicant 
wants to learn and the factors that influenced this decision. 

Consistent rating measures have been established for the evaluation of the five above areas. 
The same measures will be used for individuals who apply through UNCG and NC A&T 
State graduate schools. 

Specific admission review procedures have been delineated. In particular, the Joint Admis- 
sions Committee has developed a review process that ensures a consistent and fair evaluation 
of applicants through both graduate schools. One example of this fair evaluation process is 
the assignment of two faculty raters for each applicant, one from NC A&T State University 
and one from UNCG. 



231 



All applicants will be notified of the Joint Admissions Committee decisions in writing, with 
letters sent out from the two respective graduate schools.

The purpose of the Interpersonal Skills Lab is to prepare students for entry into field instruc- 
tion. The course allows students the opportunity to examine and practice interpersonal com- 
munication skills in preparation for professional practice. This course introduces students to 
a number of skills considered basic to social service delivery. Experiential learning is stressed, 
and ample opportunity will be provided for students to practice basic interpersonal skills and 
receive feedback on their performance. This course is taken concurrently with Social Work 
Practice with Individuals and Families. 

SOWK-705. Social Work Practice and Human Diversity I Credit 3(3-0) 

This course will examine cultural and social diversity and address theoretical and practice 
dimensions of social practice with oppressed people of color, women, the aged, the sexually 
diverse, and the physically disabled. The concepts of "ethnicity," "minority status," social 
stratification," and sexual preference are explored in the context of American culture and are 
translated into the impact of dealing with these issues with clients, "the system," and with the 
helper. This course is designed to have both a cognitive and sensitivity focus so that students 
will address concepts of individuality, equality, and power, in order to clarify attitudes and 
values dealing with self and others.

SOWK-706. Social Welfare Policy and Analysis II Credit 3(3-0) 

This course, the second foundation course in social welfare policy, presents social welfare pol- 
icy analysis as another form of social work practice, with a repertoire of roles, functions, and 
skills as in other practice concentrations such as interpersonal or planning and management. 
The outcomes of social policy practice are visible in various forms of legislation. Such out- 
comes also appear as administrative and judicial directives, rulings, and interpretations in the 
area of government. In the private sector, they are the decisions that shape the big and small 
operations of the social agencies, from the constitutions of national organizations to the rules 
and regulations of a neighborhood storefront agency. 

This course will deal with system maintenance and system change. As a part of this school's 
professional curriculum, the course will embody the primary value of social justice. Pro- 
grams and delivery systems are legitimate only to the extent that their impact on other sys- 
tems betters the quality of life of their members. Both personally and as professionals, social 
workers should be forces in the quest for social reform. Ethical social reform has policy analy- 
sis as its head and social justice as its heart. 

SOWK-707. Social Work Research Methods I Credit 3(3-0) 

This course is the first of two research courses in the MSW curriculum. The intention of both 
courses is to prepare the social work practitioner to use research as a means of informing and 
improving one's professional practice. The primary purpose of this course is to provide a 
framework for the rigorous study of research methodology as it relates to the professional prac- 
tice of social work. As a result of this course, students will learn, appreciate, and be able to 
apply quantitative and qualitative research strategies to address fundamental social work 
problems and processes. It is assumed that social work practice, like socio-behavioral research, 
is fundamentally a problem-solving enterprise, and that many of the essential processes 
involved in research are also inherent in social work practice. Accordingly, students will learn 
that the practice of research is a knowledge building process which informs and enhances 
social work practice. 

Although this course is designed to deal with much of the content that typically character- 
izes a basic research methods course, it does so from the perspective of professional social 
work practice. The goal, therefore, is not to develop the student into a social researcher; it is 
to help the student become a more effective practitioner of social work through better under- 
standing of the scientific nature in a more conscious and productive manner. 
The general goal of this course, therefore, is to help students to develop the skills needed to 
become critical consumers of social work research; conceptualize a problem; evaluate, orga- 
nize, and integrate relevant date (both existing and new); and derive useful solutions based 
on knowledge for professional practice. It is expected that the attainment of this goal will 
serve to prepare students to: a) contribute to the development of knowledge for the profes- 
sion as a whole; b) assess and evaluate the student's own professional practice; and c) main- 
tain an effective level of service to clients at a standard commensurate with the current level 
of knowledge in our profession. 
SOWK-708. Social Work Practice with Groups, Communities, 

and Organizations I Credit 3(3-0) 

This course is designed to prepare students to practice in the area of macro social work. 
Advanced generalist social workers must be prepared to respond to and influence changing 
social and political environments. This course prepares students for involvement in broad 
scale social systems change particularly in group, community, and organizational develop- 
ment and analysis. This course provides a framework for exploring knowledge, analytical 
skills, and professional behavior appropriate for practice with work groups, communities, 
and organizations. Students will explore and examine the relationship between the elements 



233 



which contribute to social problems and how they can be managed in the development of 
planned intervention efforts at the macro levels. 

This course builds on the introduction to concepts and basic skills covered in the Social Work 
Practice with Individuals and Families course. Heavy emphasis is given to the view that life 
is a continuous process of problem solving, during which people periodically lack either the 
skills or resources to effectively engage in problem solving requiring active involvement with 
major systems, therefore requiring social work intervention at this level. Particular empha- 
sis will be given to the multidimensional strategies of intervention including environmental 
modification on the behalf of clients. 

SOWK-709. Field Instruction and Seminar I Credit 6(6-0) 

This is the first year of the field curriculum. The purpose of the two courses is to provide an 
opportunity to students to synthesize theoretical knowledge for application within a variety 
of agency settings and among diverse client systems. Students are expected to apply theories 
and concepts from previous courses in the role of a professional social work practitioner 
within the client system of various field agency experiences. Field seminar will run concur- 
rently with the field practicum. 

Student field days are typically Mondays and Tuesdays of each week, September-May, for 
a total of 415 clock hours for the first year; a minimum of 175 clock hours for the first semes- 
ter and 240 clock hours for the second semester. Specialized placements in School Social 
Work may require a longer placement. 

During the first four weeks of field instruction (August-September), students will be in a 
classroom setting, an interpersonal skills lab, which will provide an opportunity to examine 
and practice interpersonal communication skills in preparation for professional practice within 
their respective practicum agencies. The lab will introduce students to a number of skills con- 
sidered basic to social service delivery. 

SOWK-710. Social Work with Families I Credit 3(3-0) 

This is the first course in the concentration on Social Work with Families Across the Life 
Span. This course will integrate elements of social policy which affect families with the the- 
ory, knowledge, and skills necessary to work with diverse family forms at different stages of 
life. Building on foundation year content regarding the families, this course will prepare stu- 
dents to assess and intervene with families at an advanced level. An ecological systems per- 
spective will be utilized to help students understand the relationships between individuals 
and their families and between families and the various social systems with which they inter- 
act. Special emphasis will be placed on how social policy in the United States affects fami- 
lies, and students will learn how to assess family dynamics and needs within an ecological 
model which includes attention to macrolevel variables. Particular attention will be paid to 
working with families in urban and underserved rural areas. 

Content will include advanced skills in family assessment and intervention. Multiple mod- 
els of family intervention will be presented, and students will be encouraged to develop an 
eclectic approach to family practice in which intervention models are selected based on pre- 
senting problems and family strengths. The relevance of culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual 
orientation, physical and/or mental disability to family dynamics will be emphasized, and 
students will be expected to develop intervention strategies which are sensitive to issues of 
diversity. In addition, students will be asked to work on their development of self as a fam- 
ily practitioner. Students will also be expected to learn the importance of the social worker 
as advocate for families of oppressed groups and families whose needs are not currently being 
met by social service systems. 



234 



SOWK-711. Social Work with Families II Credit 3(3-0) 

This is the second course in the concentration sequence on Social Work with Families Across 
the Life Span. This course will build on the advanced knowledge and skill gained in the pre- 
vious course and allow students to apply that knowledge to specific problems faced by fam- 
ilies across the life span. By participating in this problem-focused course, students will have 
an opportunity to learn more about the types of problems families face in the United States 
and how to use various interventive models which are most appropriate to specific types 
of problems. 

SOWK-712. Social Work in Health Care I Credit 3(3-0) 

This is the first of two courses in social work practice within the health care delivery system. 
Teaches students to use a functional health and systems model to analyze biomedical and psy- 
chosocial aspects of coping with health and illness. Students explore the complex interrela- 
tionships between health care practices, social work values, and ethical dilemmas presented 
by conflicting ideologies and advancing technology. 

SOWK-714. Social Work in Mental Health I Credit 3 (3-0) 

This course, the first of two concentration courses in social work practice in mental health, 
is designed to expose students to major policy issues, practice theory, and direct service roles 
in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. Students will gain knowledge of the 
history of mental practice in the United States, major advances in psychiatric care from bio- 
logical, social, and interpersonal perspectives, and current practice approaches with vulner- 
able populations. Special attention is given to practice with women, minorities, and persons 
who are persistently and severely mentally disabled. 

SOWK-716. Social Work Management I Credit 3(3-0) 

As advanced generalist practitioners, students must be prepared for indirect as well as direct 
practice roles. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the basic knowledge 
and skills necessary to function as a social work supervisor and manager. Students from the 
three concentrations will take this course together, thus allowing all students to gain a broader 
understanding of social work administrative issues in various fields of practice. In keeping 
with the overall thrust of this program, this course will highlight specific issues relevant to 
social work management in both urban and underserved rural areas. 
Content for this course will include principles and practices of management and administra- 
tion, with special emphasis on social work supervision, program planning, leadership, and 
decision-making, and methods for facilitating effective teamwork among staff. Functions 
and styles of supervision will be examined in the context of the three concentration areas of 
practice. Students will be encouraged to examine their personal leadership and decision-mak- 
ing styles in relationship to research findings regarding effective leadership and to learn effec- 
tive leadership and decision-making skills. Students will also learn the basic elements of 
program planning, including budgeting, program management, and evaluation. 
SOWK-718. Research Designs and Data Analysis 

for Social Work Practice Credit 3(3-0) 

This course is the second of two research courses in the MSW curriculum. The intention of 
both courses is to prepare the social work practitioner to use research as a means of inform- 
ing and improving one's professional practice. The primary purpose of this course is to pro- 
vide students with advanced skills in: (1) conceptualizing research problems; (2) completing 
research in such substantive social work domains as needs assessment, program evaluation, 
and single subject research; and (3) using inferential skills for data analysis. As a result of this 
course, students will be able to apply quantitative and qualitative research strategies to address 
fundamental social work problems and processes. 



235 



Examples of family problems which will be the focus in this course are: divorce and remar- 
riage; mental and physical health problems of family members, including substance abuse; 
child abuse and neglect; spousal abuse; aging and death and poverty, including homelessness. 
As in the first course, course content will include policy issues related to specific family prob- 
lems. Therefore, students will learn how social policy impacts on families experiencing these 
problems and on social workers who are trying to help families resolve and/or manage problems. 
SOWK-713. Social Work in Health Care II Credit 3(3-0) 

This is the second of two courses on social work practice within the health care delivery sys- 
tem. This course provides students with specific practice models for working within health 
care settings as social workers. Emphasis is placed on helping students to acquire the direct 
and indirect skills needed to function as a medical social worker. Special attention is given 
assessing and understanding differential patterns of health care service utilization and deliv- 
ery based on demographic characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orien- 
tation, and residence. Students will gain skills in medical social work practice with individuals, 
families, and small groups. 

SOWK-715. Social Work in Mental Health II Credit 3(3-0) 

This course, the second of two concentration courses in social work practice in mental health, 
is designed to expose students to specific clinical approaches to the practice social work in 
mental health settings. Using a seminar format and a case study approach, students will 
expand their knowledge and skills from the first concentration course in treating specific 
mental disorders. Students will also examine the context of mental health practice including 
the impact of policy and organizations upon practice as well as the strengths and constraints 
of multidisciplinary treatment approaches. Special attention is given to practice with women, 
minorities, and persons who are persistently and severely mentally disabled. 
SOWK-720. Advanced Generalist Integrative Seminar 

(Capstone Project) Credit 3(3-0) 

This course is intended to enable students to develop an in-depth understanding of various 
professional issues which are relevant to both direct and indirect practice in a variety of social 
work settings. Specifically, this course will focus on professional issues related to values, 
ethics, and legal requirements; person of the social worker; managing stress and avoiding 
burnout; effective use of supervision; and preparation for entry into the social work job mar- 
ket, including professional association affiliation and certification for social work practice. 
Because this is a seminar, the primary responsibility for class activities will rest with the stu- 
dents. Students will be expected to raise issues from their current practicum setting and past 
work experiences which are relevant to the class. 
SOWK-722. and SOWK-724. Field Instruction and 

Seminar II and III Credit 6(6-0) each 

Second year field is a culmination of the academic preparation for Social Work practice. As 
advanced Generalists, students are expected to demonstrate understanding and application of 
social work theories, skills and interventions. Additionally, students are expected to assume 
greater independence in their own practice. 

Field Seminar will run concurrently with the field practicum. Student field days will typi- 
cally be Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays of each week, August-May, for a minimum of 
696 clock hours during the second year. Specialized placements in School Social Work require 
a longer placement. School social work internships include activity three days a week for the 
academic year, August-June.
